Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question.

1) You need to identify the switched loop wire that extends from the switch box up to the light fixture. Your switched loop wire is not connected to the switch. Thus the reason the light won't turn OFF.

2) A continuity tester can confirm which wire is the switched loop conductor.
