Old School was released in 2013 as a new game, so your account has never played it. RS3 has been running since 2004, so that's where your account is.

Nothing is transferable between the two because they're separate games.

Technically, your account is on the game it belongs because it's on the game you've played. No harm in starting over though. :p

I'd suggest reading a bit about the release of OSRS to get a better understanding of the circumstances:
https://runescape.wiki/w/Old_School_RuneScape


This wasn't like the transfer of RuneScape Classic to RuneScape 2 in 2004 where players were given an option to transfer over or not. Old School was released in 2013 as a brand new game from a back up of the game from 2007. Transferring an account to a version of the game that is 6 years older wouldn't have been feasible. And, doing so would have been detrimental for the integrity of the game.

After the Evolution of Combat (2012) and New Interface System (2013) updates, RuneScape 2 was rebranded as RuneScape 3 as a marketing ploy. However, it is still referred to as just RuneScape, and it's running on the same game that began with RuneScape 2's release in 2004.

Edit: This article from the Support Centre sums it up nicely: RuneScape and Old School

"Launched in 2013, this backup version of RuneScape from August 2007 has evolved into something completely new and requires you start your character from scratch.

Profile progress is completely independent, meaning that character information, stats, and items do not transfer between the two games."
