I am a little confused...is this a single speed? If so, are you using a wider chain such as 7-8 speed chain or a narrower chain as used for 10-11 speed geartrains? If the chain is too narrow it can't set down over the teeth in sprocket or chain ring. A also, a 9 tooth sprocket on a small wheel bike will wear very quickly and a new chain can skip or slip on a worn sprocket. If this bike has a derailleur they can be adjusted.
