I advise adding atleast a fish or two first just to help build up your biofilter before adding corals.
You could gave a good hundred or more invested in frags then the sudden change such as adding a fish can and will cause changes. Corals will not appreciate this and even losses can occur if severe enough. After your cycle without a large ammonia source such as fish your beneficial bacteria colonies will begin to shrink, making adding fish even more of a change.
Your safest bet is a few fish first, then coral. This will give your tank a bit of time to mature as well. You can just as easily go the other way but id advise being careful on fish and number of fish added at one time to avoid any spikes in ammonia.
