You are mixing a few things.

Having office web apps installed, configured and connected to your farm is sufficent enough to view and edit office documents in the browser. You dont need to configure additional sharepoint components like to word- or powerpoint service.

Please check first if your configuration is working: http://[your office web apps/hosting/discovery

Check if you have completed all steps:

On the office web apps server

New-OfficeWebAppsFarm -InternalURL "http://servername" -AllowHttp -EditingEnabled

On the sharepoint server

New-SPWOPIBinding -ServerName -AllowHTTP
