Filament stuck in the tube and I can not take of it. I took out tube from printer and tried to push with other filament; but it didn't even move a little bit. Do you have any idea? Thanks.

Use a hairdryer to heat the bowden push another peace of filament so they bond, then when they fuse a bit start pulling. That should make the 'big' part smaller.

Another trick is to put the whole tube into hot water to soften the filament but not the bowdentube. It is a bit more controllable than hot air.

Neotko's method is a little quicker if you've done it 5 times but also more dangerous - you could just melt it in there. Pouring a pot of boiling water into a pyrex or metal pan is the perfect temperature for this: 70-80C (even though boiling water is 100C it will cool very quickly when it hits the pan).

It helps to have gloves or tongs. And a friend (4 hands).
