The question is who, the Nova2 or the FritzBox! router says:

The Nova2 can be connected to the guest network. This means that you can connect and see in the DHCP list to which MAC address and which TCP/IP address the Nova2 connects.

The answer why should the Nova2 work on your guest network and not on your secure network is possible:
  • Your Nova2 is set to the wrong fixed address and/or subnet mask
  • Your Nova2 uses a certificate to connect.
You should therefore check if you see the MAC address of your Nova2 in the subnet overview of your DHCP server list if it is connected to the secure network. That's what the message seems to point to. If the MAC address is in the DHCP connection list, then you have a connection on the access layer and possibility of blocked by a security mechanism.

Either it has
  • a fixed IP address that matches within the subnet of your guest network (Wi-Fi setting must be DHCP to received correct network settings),
  • or you have ever worked with a certificate to establish a secure connection with a network provider. I can only find documentation for a Nova3 use of a certificate. Normally, I find the use of a certificate to make a secure connection only for a secure connection on public Wi-Fi access points.

Since your other devices do connect, you might consider a factory reset for your Nova2 to clean up your network connection configuration. First make a backup of your files on your Nova2.

So the first step is to see if the Nova2 is configured for DHCP,
Second step is check if certificate is used
Third step is make a backup and set the device back to factory default and configure your network in the Nova2
