What you did here was plugging the guitar into the amp's input and the pedal to to the amp's output.
While from a certain point of view this makes sense it's not the way you wanna do things - you have to plug the guitar into the pedal's input and the pedal's output to the amp's input.

'cause this way your signal is going to the amp and it's being amplified and then emitted.
If you plug the amp's output though, what happens is that you basically amplify your sound and then send it to the pedal, but the signal doesn't return to the amp, so unless you plugged the pedal into something else there would be no way in which your sound would be emitted.
