I think it's just your FTP hierarchy. Put the stuff that is currently in the wordpress folder directly inside the folder your domain is pointing to. Might have to reinstall wordpress

3.In the box for WordPress address (URL): change the address to the new location of your main WordPress core files. Example: http://example.com/wordpress
4.In the box for Site address (URL): change the address to the root directory's URL. Example: http://example.com
5.Click Save Changes. (Do not worry about the error message and do not try to see your blog at this point! You will probably get a message about file not found.)

Although this is intended for a move, WP has url rewrite do this:

example.com/wordpress/index.php -> example.com/index.php
