I presume you used the technique @ https://journal.hovatek.com/how-to-use-a...rshmallow/
If that's true then you won't be able to use the external SD card for such.
Copy any zip you wish to use to internal storage and change your preferred storage in TWRP to internal

Yes, I used Marshmallow's default technique to use external sdcard as internal storage.
When using an external sdcard as internal storage in marshmallow, the access of phone's internal storage is lost for media files by default. How am I supposed to copy any zip or any other file to phone's internal storage? And how to change preferred storage in TWRP to internal?

you can use a PC to copy files to the internal storage OR you can download a file manager e.g Xplore from playstore then use it to copy file in btw storage devices

To change storage in TWRP,
* boot to TWRP recovery
* select "Mount"
* select "Select Storage"

When I connect my phone to PC it shows only the sdcard which i'm currently using as internal storage. Downloaded Xplore can you please tell me the possible path of phone's internal storage?

Here it is...

[Image: Screenshot_20170509-222526.png]

Above, the '0' is sdcard and "device" is actually the root folder (not internal storage). See these screenshots below, you'll understand...

[Image: Screenshot_20170509-222758.png]  [Image: Screenshot_20170509-222809.png]  [Image: Screenshot_20170509-222847.png]

In last two screenshots, Solid explorer showing the 'Root' folder and ES File explorer showing 'Device' folder but both folder containing same files & folders which means, both folders are same, various apps showing just different names. The fact is, there is no sign of phone's internal storage.

But in setting>storage & USB, I can find the internal storage but i can do nothing except moving data to sdcard. The option named as "Migrate data" as you can see in the screenshots below...

0 is your internal storage
You can't interact with the external SD card since its been used as an adoptable storage
