Forget shutter priority or program for indoor flash shots. The camera will just open up the lens wide in the low ambient light, and that may not be what you want.
Use aperture priority and the camera should detect the flash & set flash sync speed, probably 1/60? If you want a faster shutter use manual & set it as you wish up to 1/200 or whatever your fastest sync speed is.You should probably ignore the camera's meter, it shows the ambient light and doesn't know what the effect of flash will be. Let eTTL do its thing.
