I was modeling a tree trunk and I placed the origin cursor on the trunk and added an icosphere. But when I tried to select one of them with the mouse it would select both at the same time as if I had joined them (which I know I did not).

Thank you to anyone who answers :)

If you add a mesh while in Edit Mode, the mesh will be part to the selected object. In an object you can have many different meshes, even if they don't share any vertices.

If you want them to be two different objects, exit Edit Mode add the new mesh while in Object Mode.

Anyway, you can select the added mesh and separate it (Press P).

For a detailed explanation on the difference on creating objects in edit mode and object mode read: Why can't objects in Edit Mode have their own name?
