I’ve opened a traditional IRA through Fidelity, can I invest in other funds outside of my IRA account?

I rolled over a 401k to a traditional IRA 2 years ago. I'm in a position where I'd like to invest in index funds but I'm somewhat clueless on how to do so. My Fidelity account says the max contributions I can make in a year is $5500. How can I invest in separate index funds outside of my IRA contributions? Can I still contribute more than $5500 under that same account and just write off the max of $5500?
