Ceiling fan wiring

I am installing a ceiling fan to an existing switch. I used 12/2 cable and tied. Black and black white from fan to black and white to white from ceiling fan and obviously grounded the fan.
My existing switch box had two sets of wires coming in. One set w/ blk, white, ground and the other the same w/ a red wire. They were wired to the switch red @ top right, blk from same set to bottom right and the blk from the other set to bottom right pushed in. All whites and grounds were capped.
I put new fan wire white w/ other whites and blk to top right of switch. Flipped power on, switch does not work, fan and light work fine w/ chains. What the problem is?
Limited knowledge, red wire traveler wire and the switch is in the middle of the circuit? How to fix?
