Thanks everyone for your assistance.

I had already tried Andre's suggestion (except editing firebird.conf) to no avail but Christophe's suggestions worked perfectly. I really appreciate everyone's help.

Firebird, use username - groupname firebird.

But opt/firebird is a program folder; so it's owned by root and nobody can modify anything.

So, you have two solutions :
- use another folder for your database owned by firebird, group firebird

- or change security settings to you /opt/firebird/dbs folder as this :
chown -c firebird:firebird -R /opt/firebird/dbs
chmod 771 /opt/firebird/dbs
