First, in VirtualBox make sure that the host can see the guest system. The easiest way to do this is change Network settings to Bridged mode and make sure that Promiscuous Mode is set to "Allow All." (Sorry, I don't know what the German settings will be called, but hopefully that translates easily.)

Second, Odoo/OpenERP is a different beast than something like Wordpress. Keep in mind that OpenERP is its own webserver. So starting openerp-server is similar to starting Apache itself, and in this particular regard they are peers. You don't need to configure Apache to do anything (you can, I mean it's possible, but if you're just starting out, it's not necessary).

Also, it's not necessary to configure DNS. If that's confusing you, don't do it. It's not clear from your question, but I'm assuming that your new Odoo server is a different VM than your Wordpress server. I hope that's true, because trying to mix them might get confusing. So on your guest Ubuntu system, the new one for Odoo, if you type this command:

ifconfig eth0

It will show you the primary virtual network controller and what IP address it got. That's the IP you want to use in:

http://[ip of server]:8069

If "ifconfig eth0" doesn't work, you can do "ifconfig -a" to show all network controllers. 

Once you get used to working with Odoo, there are options for setting it up to run with nginx and gunicorn, which makes it more like a normal web server, but you DON'T need to do that initially. The openerp-server command itself will run its own web server.
