I can get contract bytecode and it's creator via this URL. https://etherscan.io/address/CONTRACT_ADDRESS
[example: https://etherscan.io/address/0x5a3e58c7cf09217d2a5385bf96c02673ed1187bb#code]

I would like to get it on geth console but not found solution during several days. I think there will be a way since etherscan provide it.
My try was using web3, but no success, any kind of help will be much appreciate!

The bytecode should be accessible via getCode. I'm not aware of an efficient way to find the contract's creator (the originator of the transaction that created the contract). I believe you would have to just scan transactions.
