BGW210-700 static IPs and Firewall

My question is probably very easy to answer :)

my home network is working great and I like to make it better... here is my set up

BGW210-700 gig speed

Opnsense firewall (or pfsense for folks who are not familiar ) connected to BGW210-700

Switch and all my home network (APs , switches) connected to the firewall 

I've recently purchased 5 static IP package from ATT and had their technician set it up in BGW210-700 modem. 

Firewall Status

Packet Filter Off
IP Passthrough On
NAT Default Server Off
Firewall Advanced Off

Private LAN Subnet

DHCP Server

  •  Off
  •  On

Public Subnet

  •  On
  •  Off
  •  Off
  •  On
Primary DHCP Pool

Cascaded Router

  •  On
  •  Off

my OPNsense WAN interface is configured as DHCP . when I try to access my public dynamic ip, I hit my firewall logic page. when I try to access my static ip gateway, I hit modem logic ip 

my goal is access some of my devices through my static ips. I can set up OPNsense rules to expose certain ports via DMZ plan etc. and set up A record for my domain for easy to remember address)

When I go to whatismyip.com , I see my dynamic ip. my exception is to have my static ip, right? What I should change?
