Can't it also be 'Det er klokken otte'?

Yes depending on the context. "Klokken er otte" is a response to someone asking what time it is, while your suggestion would be a response to someone asking what time the meeting is e.g. Actually, when I think about it, it is the exact same as in English.

But then I think that it should be accepted too :/

I agree, my answer wasn't accepted too.

Til spørgsmålet "Hvad er klokken", kan man ikke svare "Den er otte"? Kan man også svare "Hun er otte" (som i svensk)?
