That sounds like "Standalone" mode. That mode is very restricted.
Try installing ORDS in a java enterprise server (ie Tomcat/Glassfish/WLS ($$) )
java -jar ords.war validate --database apex
java -jar ords.war
Standalone mode works just fine with XE. Just sounds like the URL isn't what you think it should be.
Have you also installed APEX and does this work ?
If APEX works, try creating a simple ORDS service in APEX and press the "Test" button which should provide you with a working URL
