You should use something like

/usr/lib/firebird2/bin/fbmgr -start -forever

Have you look if you install comes with a firebird script at /etc/init.d (or
something like, at your distro) use this to automatically start the FB
server, on RedHat/similar I use something like:

chkconfig --level 345 firebird on

to make it auto-start at levels 3,4 and 5

manually you could use:

/etc/init.d/firebird start
