Pentax 6x7 film count / loading problem

Hi everyone,

so I just got a Pentax 6x7 in almost mint condition from my dad. Theres not even a scratch on it.

my main problem is loading the film. When I load the film 120, the counter doesn’t move when I advance the film, and since its a pentax 6x7 the shutter cant shoot if there is no film so since the counter doesn’t move, I can’t shoot. 
However I am able to “trick” the camera in thinking it has film to dry-fire it so the shutter works.

please help me out I don’t know what to do,

thank you very much.
