google search shows "sub pages", but not my landing page/home page? I can I change that?

Id like this landing page, set in Squarespace as "home page" to show up with a google search. 

https://www.arnoldmikkelsen.dk

Instead it shows, https://www.arnoldmikkelsen.dk/vestafrika

Can I change som SEO settings or add code to make sure Google Search Engine primarily or only list my main home page url? 

 

 

However, I have coding in the header of the landing page. Code to hide items and code to run a script to forward to another page after set time.  Is that why? 

<style> header, footer {display:none;} </style>

<style>
  .sqs-cookie-banner-v2 {
    display: none !important;
}
</style>

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.6.3/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script>
$(function(){
    $("body").fadeOut(4000,function(){
       window.location.href = "https://arnoldmikkelsen.dk/vestafrika"
    })
 });
</script>

Hi @peterbjerg Yes, the code could be the cause of the indexing issue. In general, the redirect is not optimal for user experience. Note, I only see branding during the brief four-second homepage appearance. You might consider removing the redirect, creating a gallery on the homepage with images linking to the other galleries, and displaying branding on all pages.

Thanks for taking the time to answer my issue. 
 

I cannot really change the landing page "branding", because that is what the client wants. 

Is there a way with SEO to tell google to display the home page as first choice, perhaps even ONLY choice?

No, but it would be nice if we could. Google is going to follow the quick redirect, just like any  "visitor"
