Great work, however, I can't find it in twrp app from playstore. Will this be updated soon?

What's the difference between an installation from twrp-App and flashtools?

currently due to an error i made while uploading our device info i set the file to go over to twrp main page, i have already sent out a fix but needs review once its approved, it should be up and running to work with the app

That's good news. ;)
But again, what's the difference between an installation of twrp from its app and via flashtools. Is it in the end the same? Or do you recommend one of both methods?

If you already have root, i recommend the app, since its an easier to way to download, install/update the recovery, but if you dont have root you need at least once to install it from flash tools, since the app is not an option yet for the moment(its not on devices list, but you can manually install it), you can download the image and flash it through the app (if you have root, that is) if you dont have roog you need to use flash tools

I have P9000 with Nougat on it, version Elephone_P9000_20170418 and I'm trying to install TWRP 3.0.2 with SPFlash Tool, I only check recovery and flash it, but when I start the phone in recovery mod displays only show "no command". Is there any scatter file for this version, and what should I do to flash it through SPFlash Tool?

Any scatter file from one of our stock roms should do the trick, just put it alongside the downloaded twrp image, and flash it, also twrp 3.0.2 is not official, unlike this one, this one will be able to be updated directly through the twrp app once the issue is fixed.

Without root then or is it always required for this app?
the app will always require root, but you can always use magisk with the certification bug fix and magisk hide so that you can have the device certified and still be rooted. (if you dont know what certification is used for, its to allways allow the usage of android pay)

Good day!

My apologies as I am new to this, but I can't seem to find the link to the scatter file that you mention. Could you help me, please?

Thanks in advance, and sorry for the trouble.

You can try to compare your sources with those of Jonny. The TWRP versions which he build worked for me.

Edit: I tried to fix it by myself and after I used another kernel (Darksense kernel) as prebuild kernel it worked.
