Well, you said in your original posting:

I'm afraid I don't understand what you mean with "I can get my mail via
the server buffer" if you do not see any groups there.

Maybe the IMAP server indeed exports your full home directory. This can
take a while, depending on number of files in there.

You can put 

(setq imap-log t)

into your .gnus to enable IMAP logging in a buffer named "*imap
log*". You should be able to see there what's going on when you omit the
nnimap-list-pattern variable (just hit C-g after a while and switch to
"*imap log*").

If your mailboxes are stored in your home directory (this depends on the
IMAP server), you have to tell Gnus through nnimap-list-pattern where
these mailboxes are. Usually, this is a subdirectory like "~/Mail/*" or
something similar. But again, this all depends on the IMAP server.
