If i choose to book the tickets from Amsterdam (AMS) to Kuale Lumpur v.v. i have to pay 680,-

Why is a ticket AMS-KUL 233 euro more expensive than tickets OSL-AMS-KUL v.v. ????
Flight AMS-KUL vv. is by the same plane and same company.

Why do KLM use this policy and way of campaign ?
The short answer it that it's a different market and price elasticities are different.
