Any suggestion about?

OpenOffice is usually not in a modern disto like Wheezy. Instead it uses LibreOffice. I have LibreOffice and openjdk working fine in Wheezy with or without Gnome (I normally use KDE but installed Gnome to try it out and to use when KDE gives me problems in Wheezy).

If openjdk is replacing a different jdk, it could be that the removal/reinstallation is really updating the jdk setup and links.
