Try to switch of your phone and boot to download mode.(press vol down+home+power button and after that vol up to continue)
see you knox status 0x0 or 0x1. You said its been modified means you knox is 0x1-warranty void.
It is useless to flash stock rom when your knox is 0x1, it will stay like that until a developers can figure it out.
Alternative way is to install wanam exposed, it can set your phone from custom to official.

By the way, are you buying new phone or used phone? if it new its weird coz been rooted.

Did you buy it in a store? We`re the seals intact or broken when you got it, maybe they gave you a refurbished one that still had root? As said above you`re warranty is gone anyway so flash away bro

Nope I didnt buy from official store. and knox status is 0x1. Im not worried about the warranty because I have 2 years from the place where i bought it.. They have to deal with the place they have bought it to resell. I just want to flash this device and remove the root.. how can i do that? Thanks

No, impossible as you have KK bootloader. It will just hang at the samsung screen and get REALLY hot if you flash a JB rom...
