wiring switch for bathroom exhaust fan & light fixiture

I replaced an existing fixture, I have two of each of white, black and green wires. one set is for the fan and 1 for the light. After connecting the wires to the wall switch, in the "on" position the light goes on, but not the fan, In the Off position the light goes off and the fan goes on. I have also tried a double, single pole switch. No matter what I have tried, I can not get the light and fan to be on at the same time. Any suggestions.

More important then the fan wires what are the other wires in the ceiling box and how are they connected? What are the wires at the switch and how are they connected?
