The fixture has one black, one white and one green wire. The ceiling has one black, one white and one red wire. I connected the black to black, white to white and left the red alone and the green alone ( I tried connecting those two together but sparks flew)It turned on when I turned the circuit switch back on. But now the wall switch won't turn the light on or off. What did I do wrong?

The green is ground. Connect to bare wire or box if it is metal.
