Look for time tracking rather than original estimate in the list of fields to add to the screen - try that instead. (The estimate and time tracking fields are actually all one field, displayed differently)

Here you have additional information about time tracking:

Hello,

You can add Time Tracking to the issue's edit screen and it will allow to change the original estimate.

Be careful that once you have logged work on an issue, Original Estimate will be replaced with Remaining Estimate and you will no longer be able to update the Original Estimate.
