### Reference order

Hi,
I'm new in latex and writing my master thesis. When I cite a reference in a figure, due to the list of figures in the begginig of the thesis, the reference number automatically changes to a higher than it shuld based on the introduction order. Is there a way to prevent this? Like making the compiler ignore the lists and make the order based only on the introduction chapter?

For example, when adding this
Direct application onto the tumor, avoiding systemic circulation, is also an option. \cite{Shukla2019, zwicke2012}
\begin{figure}[h]
\centering
\includegraphics[width=0.5\textwidth]{images/epr.JPG}
\caption{Illustration of passive targeting based on the difference between healthy and tumor tissue, that leads to a higher accumulation of molecules on the tumor.\cite{zwicke2012}}
\label{fig:epr}
\end{figure}

The zwicke paper should be the number 2, put since it's going to appear first in the list becomes number 1.

I have this comand to create the list automatically
\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{\listfigurename}
\listoffigures
\NewPage

and this one for the references and bibliography
\bibliographystyle{IEEEtran}
\bibliography{bibliography/dissertation}
