Copyrighted statues in Helsinki?

I have strange problem with Wikipedia:

I have made a photo shot of the statue installed in the public place
in Helsinki, Finland and uploaded it to Wikipedia. But I was told that
this statue is copyrighted (?) and there was a link to the list of
more copyrighted objects:

Is it a mistake or are the pieces of arts installed in Helsinki really
copyrighted and it's not legal to make their photos and share them?
Sounds really weird for me.

I really want to read more about the case in Swedish or English.

Thanks in advance!
