You can:

- change the threshold and gap closing settings for the bucket tool
- use the fill and stroke dialog to apply a fill to an object instead
- use Boolean operations to create a shape that can be filled via fill property

The general advice is: avoid using the bucket tool if you're new to Inkscape. Use proper vector tools instead.
Learn about Inkscape usage in the interactive tutorials that come with Inkscape: Help > Tutorials > Basic, Advanced, Tips+Tricks.

Can you help with this problem?
