Since there is way more pressure from the oil pump than there is pressure in the cooling system oil can leak into the cooling system and coolant not leak back due to the pressure differential.It is very easy to have a head gasket leaking and not see where the leak was with a visual inspection after disassembly. I would inspect the head for cracks and if it is ok clean the block and head and have the head checked for warpage and if it is ok replace the head gasket and you should be good to go.
