i think that there is a service listening that port....

an example:
iptables DROP ALL but i've a web service -> the packet to the port 80 will be dropped but the port is opened ;-D ...

i don't know how can cange the status "opened" to "close" or "stealth"....

I don't believe a port has a state of "stealth"...stealth simply means that a packed was dropped so the issuer receives no respone. If a request is made and it is "rejected" then the client knows the host exists but the port is "closed".
