I'm fairly certain that Word doesn't allow for different page numbering on the same page, as you probably found out, the 'fix' elsewhere on this site saying just add page numbers at top and bottom doesn't work because when you come to format the numbers it does both the same as you cannot format just the header or just the footer.

If this is a printed document you are producing then the only way I can think of would be to print as normal and then put the printed pages through again with just the second lot of page numbers on, but it's a bit fiddly.
