Default Very weird fermentation

so i just made my stout 5 hours ago and my airlock its going nuts..a lot of action in the airlock but nothing happening inside my fermenter that i can see. The airlock its going as fast as i ever seen it but no action inside the tank...anybody every see this before?

When you say nothing is happening in the fermenter, do you mean it just looks like flat beer? Is there any foam (krausen) on top?

every fermentation I have had has been different, from the one that took 72 hours to start, to the carboy volcano I had after 6 hours!!!
