Ceiling fan installed, but other lights wonít turn on

Hi, I am replacing a light with ceiling fan in one of my bedrooms. After I installed the ceiling fan, the fan and the lights of the fan turns on. But my other lights (light at hallway and light above staircase) are all not working. Those lights were controlled by the same circuit switch as the ceiling fan. I thought I might have some loosened connections. But I uninstalled the fan and I didnít find any loosened connection. So I am not sure if my wiring is correct. I have attached one photo I took when I removed the original light. And the 2nd one is the wiring I am using for the ceiling fan. Am I missing anything? Thanks in advance.

Issue solved

Never mind. I was able to reinstall it and everything works this time. It seems to me that a white wire was loose in the cap, I redid the wire and the problem is solved.

Give the splice a good twist before putting the wire nut on if you have further problems.
