I have exactly the same problem, I've just started using Office 365. I can open only the files listed in the "Recently Used" (none of which are very recent) so effectively I can't use Excel 365. When I do a save as for a blank workbook it doesn't display my existing OneDrive folders.
Sorry I can't help you and by the look of it Microsoft Support aren't gonna be much help either.

I did get some help from MS support, the problem might be related to the fact that I was using Excel 365 in the browser, not in the desktop app. I haven't had a chance to test this yet; I've been using Office 2013 which apparently I'll need to uninstall before I can use the MS 365 desktop app. I find the prospect a bit scary; if I uninstall it but still have problems with Excel 365 it'll cause me a big headache as I use Excel every day for my daughter's business.
I'd prefer to use the desktop app as it has extra functionality, but it seems to me that I should still be able to open files from the web browser version.

@davidmreid , I had the same problem and here is what i did instead (sorry eng is not my first language)
1. Open Microsoft Store
2. See if you already have Microsoft365 app installed (if not install)
3. Open the Microsoft365 app- click Excel tab (on the Left side)
4. (Inside the Excel tab) You should see "Upload" button at the right hand upper corner
5. Once you upload the .xlsx file inside the app, it should bring up the excel sheet online right away
PS: I do not know how to navigate the web-excel open function to the designated folder.
