Bonjour Alexandra, Nous voulons is the normal way to say "we want" in French. On veut is informal. Note that on veut can also mean "you" and "people in general": On = we, one, people

but doesn't on also mean we ?

Yes and as Laura mentioned, it's "informal". So if you're with your friends, you can use "on" instead of "nous".
