set up Netgear router

We have a new cable ISP
New Modem router Netgear C3700-100NAS this is working ok and is a LAN
Also have a Netgear Nighthawk X6 R800
I need to create a port forward to get to a device on which I added to the router

what else do I need to do? is there a way to turn the router into a bridge and only use the modem connection so I can use my router with part forwards?

The ISP probably doesn't allow you to put THEIR devices in bridge mode. If the ISP does NOT allow you to add a port forward to the modem, you are in trouble. IF they allow it, just port forward the desired port to the other netgear router first, and then again another port forward.
So port forwart port x to In port forward port x to
