where the ROW() function returns the number of the row containing the formula itself. But that creates a text string that looks like a formula, not a formula as such. You can interpret text as a formula using the INDIRECT() function, so you need something like
which you can copy or fill down the column.

If you want A1, A9, A17, and so on, you could use
