Only one protocol 802.11 when sniffing over monitor mode and open network.

I am trying to capture packets on an open network (the SSID does not have any password). During packet capture, all I see is 802.11 under protocol column. Please see snapshot for better understanding.

One of the wireshark question lead me to this solution --> but as I am sniffing on open network, I don't understand why to decrypt the packet using this method.

I am a newbie in this thing, so please ignore my talent :|

How do I see other protocols like udp, http, etc on monitor mode ?
