Installing ceiling lights

I am trying to install ikea ceiling lights, but after I connected bunch of blacks and bunch of whites from ceiling to ikea lights they donít turn off. Also connected the ikea green yellow to copper wire. Wondering how I can solve this issue?
Could it be a switch issue?

Welcome to the forums.

I'm guessing you changed the splices in the box.

I see a problem.
I see three whites spliced together and three black wires spliced together.
I see a capped off black wire.
There should be an equal number of white and black wires. Where is the fourth white wire ?
