First question to pose is why are WAN and public IP different? Do you have two routers?
You'll have to tell more about your network environment to allow us to help.

Hi,

Your WAN IP is being issued by your ISP but is non routeable.

This is cheaper for them, and actually makes you arguably more secure, but it did mean you can't route into your network from the internet.

My guess would be that if you talk to your ISP, they will be able to give you a publicly routeable IP, but they might charge you more for that.

It would mean that you could then forward ports and allow incoming connections from the internet at large.
