Fillet going wrong direction & cannot sweep from surface

Hello,

I am modeling an exhaust manifold and am confused as to why my fillet where the exhaust pipe meets the exhaust manifold mounting face is going the wrong direction. I also cannot sweep the exhaust pipe from the exhaust manifold mounting surface for some reason. The only way I was able to sweep the pipe was to create an extrude as the first part of the pipe, and then sweep from the extrusion. Is there another way to do this? See below for images:
