You would have to contact the landlord/property manager to ask why the rent is listed at $900.   The rent Zestimate is only an estimate, and sometimes can be way off.  The rent Zestimate is not the asking price.

When the Rent Zestimate is very different from asking price (such as the one you noticed) , either Zillow doesn't have the data for the property correct or possibly it is a scam.  Scam listings tend to have well below market rents.

The rent is the rent being asked by the landlord/property manager.   The Rent Zestimate is Zillow's estimated rent.   Here's a link to "What is a Rent Zestimate?"

When looking for rentals on the internet (Zillow and many other locations), make sure you are aware of possible red flags for scams.  Here's a useful link.   from Zillow on the subject of scams
