If there was an ice wall on the east and west side, were the sun rises and sets, then how could  ice form there, why wouldn't it melt!

Ask yourself, how does ice form on the north pole, which receives the same number of hours of sunlight per year as every other place on earth.

incorrect - the north & south poles don't receive the same number of hours of sunlight - hence the presence of ice.

the sun doesn't shine equally on all parts of the earth! The earth rotates on an axis defined by the north & south poles, and the sun is located perpendicular (well 4%-6% off actually) to this axis. This means that the equator receives WAY more heat intensity than the north & south poles. Thats why there's snow & ice in the colder poles and deserts and extremely hot climates near the equator
