This is a common issue that pops up when you've encrypted the SD card used in your phone. Just follow the steps in this guide, only once you've gotten to the point where you can choose to encrypt, choose to undo the encryption instead: Encrypt Files on Your SD Card Using Your Android Phone.

Once you've removed the encryption, you'll be able to set the lock to whatever you like.

After locked screen, my phone does not have the option for face-lock?

No face lock option in lock screen.
