    You are connecting the high frequency AC output with the bulb by way of capacitance of your body.
    When you connect directly a DC path is created and the high freq AC no longer affects the tube enough to create a glow in the phosphor.

    Put the correct AC supply to the bulb, 120- 220V, then it works.

    Connect it to the kind of power supply it was designed for.
