Why is fent not possible in this case?


Fent/fenn is an adverb, fölött is a postposition. I hope I got your question right.


To elaborate a bit on this: fent is an absolute position, it just means 'above'. If you want to give a relative position (above something), you'll have to use the postposition fölött.
