You should have given reproducible code!

In my understanding, (g)arch is applied to an uncorrelated series without autocorrelastions, as the residuals from a properly estimated ARIMA model. So to get the predictions for the original series, you need to

1) predict with the ARIMA model
2) estimate a garch model to the residuals
3) predict the residuals
4) modify the prediction from 1) with the prediction from 3)
