I can't say "Links von ihm gibt es ein weiterer Berg"?

I asked in the report why we can't use "es gibt" in this sentence. Any thoughts from native speakers?

I put anderer Berg - why must it be wiederer Berg? Is there a reason?

"Another" in English can mean both "different" (This is another story) and "one more" (Another glass of wine, please). Here it is rather "one more mountain" than "different mountain". I'd say "ein weiterer Berg" or even "noch ein Berg" is better.

"ein anderer Berg" translates as "a different mountain".

I don't understand the accusative part of this sentence. No "einen" for example. Can someone explain this to me please?

Why accusative? "Ein weiterer Berg" is the subject of the sentence, so it is in nominative case.
