    Using your phone:
    force close the oculus app
    Log out and force close the facebook app
    open the facebook app and login using the app you want
    open the occulus app
    login then try to merge

    Yeah, if you're logged into Facebook in any capacity on your device (Facebook app, browser, etc.) then you will only be given the option of using that account.

    That said, Facebook really doesn't want you to use a different Facebook account for VR stuff. It's against the terms of service, and you might be risking your Oculus account--if the Facebook account gets suspended after merging it with your Oculus account, you can end up locked out of all your Oculus purchases.

    You can still keep things separate while using your main Facebook account--you will use your Oculus username in VR, as well as your Oculus friends list, separate from your Facebook friends list. You can set your privacy settings so that nobody you interact with in VR can see your Facebook name, and you can keep your VR activity from being posted to your Facebook page.
