First of all the smart hub doesn't have a modem only mode. Secondly, even if it did you wouldn't connect your router to its WAN port even if it had one.  Is your own router a pure router or a modem/router?

You cannot use it unless you purchase a separate modem as well. If you have just bought it, then exchange it for a VDSL Modem/router instead.

Openreach no longer supply modems to BT Retail and other ISPs.

You could look for a second hand Openreach modem,  use a VDSL Modem/Router which has a separate modem only mode, or buy a separate VDSL modem, but there are not many of those.

the hh6 is a modem/router hence you don't get a separate modem  if you only have a router then you need to buy a modem as the HH6 cannot be usied as a modem only

BT don't supply modems, they supply a combined modem/router, the Home Hub. You will need to buy your own modem if you want to use a standalone router. Your options are fairly limited to a used Openreach HG612 from ebay, A Draytek Vigor 130, a Netgear DM200 or various Zyxzel devices that can be configured in bridge mode.

The smart hub is a combined modem router, that is what BT have supplied you with.
