Override New Account Button

Hi All,

I want to override the "New" standard button on the Account object with a visualforce in order to avoid the record type selection. I want to redirect it to the Account creation with the Record Type "Nuevo Account". The below code works fine for other object than Account, where it doesn´t load:


<apex:page standardController="Account" Extensions="testpage" action="{!dotestpage}">
    <apex:form >



public class testpage{
 Account acct;
public testpage(apexpages.StandardController stdcontroller){

    public PageReference dotestpage(){
    PageReference pageRef = new PageReference('/003/e');
    return pageRef;


Tanks for the help!
