Cloud cover FEW009 is not ceiling at 900ft. FEW means 1-2 Octas.
Ceiling is the height of the lowest layer of cloud covering more than half the sky.
Ceiling is referred to broken (BKN 5-7 Octas) or overcast (OVC 8 Octas) amount of clouds.
Typical visibility requirement for VFR is 5 km if you fly up to FL100.
The exact requirements vary by type of airspace,
whether it is day or night (for countries that permit night VFR),
and from country to country.
