Is it a problem with the sqrtn(x,n) (n-th root of x)? Or wih floor and ceil functions?

I wanted to search if some numbers were perfect powers using the trick:
If(floor(sqrt(x,n))==ceil(sqrt(x,n)),.....

and trying to use n (the n-th root ) as a variable in a for loop to look for many possible n-roots if this was possible technically.

What is the way to solve my problem to detect if some kind of numbers are perfect powers?

Perhaps ispower() is what you're looking for?
