Toilet flange won't fit

Having some trouble replacing a toilet flange, toilet was rocking/leaking, pulled it off and of course the flange was broken. Managed to chisel off the old flange, went and got a new one but it would appear they are the exact same size...or perhaps the drain is slightly smaller. I don't know if I have the wrong size/style flange or what. I've read that PVC pipe clearances can be tight, but I can't even get this one started at all.

Any advice is appreciated.

Most likely you have wrong flange. They make a flange that will go into the black pipe. I had to get one from plumbing supply store. Think I saw one at Lowes the other day,

Look for a toilet repair flange. It has a protruding end with gasket that you shove down into your existing pipe.

You bought a PVC flange and what you have is not PVC.

I seem to be having a hard time finding one that fits a 4 inch pipe. That is the type of flange that fits down into the pipe.

Thank you so much. I for whatever reason couldn't find that, all I saw was cast iron 4 inch, not ABS suited stuff.
