I just joined an "Accelerated Start" game (where you can submit the first 3 turns in one go) and found that somebody already made those 3 turns and then resigned.

Is it possible to reset everything and go back to turn 1?

I think this is not possible. Otherwise one could join with an alternate account, use the accelerated start turns to gather information, resign, join with main account, reset, and use the previously gained information to get an illegit edge.

Isn't that possible anyway (without accelerated start) ?
I'm just asking to reset the previous resigners' actions.

It's not possible as some people would reset the turn 5 times to locate the best options before confirming their desired one.

So fast turns are locked.

I see - it makes sense.
However it would be nice to see before joining that someone already made 3 turns.

The way it is now could possibly lead to a few more drops. In my particular case I consider the moves of my predecessor not very constructive, so I might as well drop again ( I will not ).

I believe joins and resigns are logged in the activity feed. Try paying attention to those the next time you join an Accelerated Start game.

I've been in that situation Kwesy; it sucks. However, the truth is that wasting those first few turns is just not that damaging in the long run if you play the rest well. Maybe in a championship game you would be in trouble, but in 99% of the others you will be just fine. Good luck!
