You need to add story point field on the create screen of the epic and story issue types.

You need to also add the Story points field on the "Screen scheme" associated with the issue in the project's screen scheme.

Also, while create issues. On the create issue popup on the top right, there is an option of "Configure fields" when you click on "configure fields" then you can click on the link "Where is my field?" and then type the field name - "Story points" in this case and JIRA will also tell you exactly why the field is not appearing on the create screen.
