GitLab: Could not read from remote repository

I created my project and added my ssh-key (both over webinterface), but when I try to push something to the repo, I get this error: "Could not read from the repository". This might be due to the fact, that the .git-project-file does not exist in the /home/git/repositories/[group]/ folder.

The gitlab-check returns:

[Group] / [Project] ... can't create, repository is empty


Error when pushing to repository



git remote add origin git@myserver.com:[group]/[project].git

git push -u origin master

fatal: '/home/git/repositories/[group]/[project].git' does not appear to be a git repository
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.


What might have caused the error



ls -ld /home/git/repositories/[group]/[project].git

File not found.


Why was the file not created?

Infos about my setup
