your final position was won.
black's bishop is awful.... badly hampered by his pawns being on the same colour as his bishop.
I include 2 sample lines as to how white wins. NOTE HOW WHITE'S PLAN IS TO QUEEN THE H PAWN
from the final position.
1...... Kc5 (what else can black try)
2. Nd5 Kc4
3. g4! (blacks king is frozen out for now) if Kc5
4. Nf6 Kb4
5. g5 Be7
6. Nd5 wins so
3.......if instead Kd4
4. Nf6 Be7 (note 4..... Bf6 would lose here to 5. Kf6 Ke4 6. g5! hg 7. h6)
5. g5! Bf8 ( hg would lose straight away to Nd7)
6. gh Bh6
7. Ng4 Bg7
8. h6 Bh8
9. c3 Kc3
10. Ne5 Kb4
11. Nf7 Bd4
12 e5 queening the h pawn
