Thanks, I found that compiz does not work that way, I should try it another way.

You could create a script that starts your desired window manager after having started up some of the parts of gnome, e.g.

/usr/bin/gnome-settings-daemon &
/usr/bin/gnome-panel &
/usr/bin/nautilus &
/usr/bin/icewm         # replace with compiz

Start this way:
$ startx /home/myuser/mystartup.sh
