The round goes by several names; 9 x 19, 9mm Liuger being the more common.

While very similar in dimentions, you cannot shoot anything but 9x19 out of gun chambered for 9x19. The longer case length of a 9x21 or 9x22 will prevent your gun from going fully into battery. (From my understanding anyways)

9x19

Parent case 7.65x22mm Parabellum
Bullet diameter 9.03 mm (0.356 in)
Neck diameter 9.65 mm (0.380 in)
Base diameter 9.93 mm (0.391 in)
Rim diameter 9.96 mm (0.392 in)
Rim thickness 0.90 mm (0.035 in)
Case length 19.15 mm (0.754 in)
Overall length 29.69 mm (1.169 in)
Case capacity 0.86 cm³ (13 gr H2O)
Rifling twist 250 mm (1 in 9.84 in)
Primer type Berdan or Boxer small pistol
Maximum pressure235.00 MPa (34,084 psi)


9x21

Parent case 9x19mm Parabellum
Case type Rimless, straight
Bullet diameter 9.03 mm (0.356 in)
Neck diameter 9.63 mm (0.379 in)
Base diameter 9.93 mm (0.391 in)
Rim diameter 9.96 mm (0.392 in)
Rim thickness 1.27 mm (0.050 in)
Case length 21.15 mm (0.833 in)
Overall length 29.75 mm (1.171 in)
Case capacity 1.01 cm³ (16 gr H2O)
Rifling twist 254 mm (1 in 10 in)
Primer type Small pistol
Maximum pressure235.00 MPa (34,084 psi)

Don't forget the 9x17 and 9x18, also.

No, your FNP9 will only safely shoot 9mm Parabellum/Luger or 9x19 NATO. Read your owners manual to be sure though, as 9x19 and 9mm Parabellum/Luger are not one in the same. The NATO round produces higher chamber pressures than SAAMI and CIP spec'ed 9mm Parabellum.

That brings up a question until just now I never researched or thought to ask, what is the difference between 9mm luger and 9mm parabellum?

They're the same round, the only difference is if you're looking at SAAMI specs, or CIP specs. Georg Luger invented the round, so it bears his name in Europe (CIP) in America (SAAMI) it's known by 9mm Parabellum. Americans traditionally avoid using the Luger name because his children have slain many American men.

It's the same deal with .45 ACP vs. .45 Auto. SAAMI calls it the .45 ACP because that's the popular name in America, due to Samuel Colt being a national hero. CIP calls it the .45 Auto, as does most of Europe, again, as Sam Colt's invention had slain many despots, tyrants and their followers in Europe. They're the exact same round though.
