Adding fields to the collections

Hey there,

I am fairly new to Shopify theme development. Currently I am faced with the task that I should adapt an existing Shopify theme.

I would like to add a new text field to the Collections. For this I have already customized the template in the theme editor.

{% section 'collection-template' %}
{% section "rich-text" %}

The new section is also shown to me in the frontend:

Unfortunately, the backend does not show me the appropriate text fields on the collection pages where I can maintain the content. Have I forgotten something?

Thanks for the help

What I have found out in the meantime is that the fields are output in the Customizer but not on the pages themselves. I want to customize the text for each collection individually, so the fields need to appear on the pages themselves and not in the customizer.
