Please post details about your router and version of openwrt.

How is the openwrt router wired to the broadband connection?

If it is connected to another router, and the LAN IP address of the ISP router begins 192.168.1.x, you must change the LAN IP address of the openwrt router to use a different subnet (eg. 192.168.2.x) as described in the alternative PDF guide in above link.

Have you studied the "Alternative guide for OpenVPN client with LuCI" section at the bottom of this wiki page for generic instructions/tutorial for connecting to most VPN providers?

fwiw, if you are using OpenWrt 19.07 and successfully installed the openvpn packages, you could probably start reading from page 13,Configuring the OpenVPN Client for OpenWrt 19, of the v1.2 PDF guide.
