If you thought you needed to take apart the "two small sprockets" (pulleys) to get the chain back on the derailleur you need someone in person, with hands on bike and knowledge in head, to determine where the problem lies and to let you know how it can be corrected. I can see the chain is rubbing on the pulley cage, should not happen. But that could be just the pulley assembly, the hanger being bent/twisted or the derailleur being twisted (more rare). Until things are properly aligned you cannot get a proper adjustment across all gears.
