Old Cat Hates New Cat

We have a fixed female cat that is three years old. She's a bit grumpy, doesn't like to be held but is affectionate on her own terms. A good cat. When she was a kitten we had an older fixed male cat. They were never friends because he was too old to play but they coexisted peacefully. Once the old male cat kicked off we waited a couple of months and brought into our home a 1 1/2 year old nonfixed female.

Our three year old cat refuses to get along with the new cat. I read up on how to introduce cats, we kept the new one in a separate room with her own litter box and after a few days let her roam the house. The cats met, squared off a few times, and I thought they were slowly getting accustomed to each other. I was wrong.
We now have the new cat completely sequestered, the first cat will not stop attacking the new cat. It actually seems to be getting worse. The new cat is really affectionate and playful but is entirely bowed by old cat and doesn't even really wan to leave her room anymore.
