From what i understand, that function only works when you open a window with the window.open() function.
Okay, thanks for your suggestion... But, how can i close a (main) window that i haven't open with the "open()" command?

It's a security issue. Just because your page is active in a window does not mean you "own" the window. A user may have 50-pages of history and forms in a window that they don't want to lose. That makes closing the window their choice, not yours.
