R7000 ftp and https connect to readyshare from internet

Hello i have a R7000 ac1900 router and it is connected to internet with Tplink td-w9970 modem. Also i have 4 TB 2.5" seagate backup plus connected to R7000 from usb 3.0 port and i am using it as a NAS.

My problem is when i trying to access my NAS from internet(WAN) i got an error connection refuse etc. I opened ftp (via internet) and https (via internet) options from Readyshare Storage page from router panel and also i have ddns account and i totally sure it is connected to my WAN IP. (i pinged and checked from whatismyip.com) I tried both ftp:// and https:// protocols to open it but no luck.I also tried to close Upnp but still no lucl too. If i try to open it from LAN i can connect with no problems.

I used Nmap to map my ports and it said all ports are filtered. 

What should i to resolve this? Open any ports from modem or router? or anything else. Thanks.

  That's a modem+router, not a simple modem.  Cascading multiple routers
can cause multiple problems, including problems like this.

   Ok, but is that the WAN/Internet address of the R7000 or of the
TD-W9970?

   Are you using the TD-W9970 as a modem or as a modem+router?  The
usual choices would be to configure the TD-W9970 as a modem-only/bridge,
and use the R7000 as the only router, or to configure the R7000 as a
wireless access point, and use the TD-W9970 as the only router.

   If the TD-W9970 has a "DMZ" option, then you could try using that to
direct all incoming connections to the R7000.  You could also try
configuring port-forwarding on the TD-W9970, but the contortions
required to make two routers behave as one router may have side effects
which would affect other activities.
