You can choose to either start a collection immediately, or return to the page you were on before. (You can, of course, start your own collection anytime, now or later).

To verify your email address and membership, we automatically send you a welcome email. You need to click the link contained in the email to verify your account.. You can still create a collection, but it will remain in draft (unpublished) mode until you verify your account.
