paint not sticking to existing paint

I am painting a washable matt emulsion onto an existing emulsion paint but it doesn't seem to want to adhere properly , I rolled on some paint above a door and tried to cut in a few minutes later and the brush removed the paint I had rolled on , any suggestions would be appreciated .

paint not sticking to existing paint

More info needed- what exactly are the paints ( and sheen) - did you do any prep ( cleaning, sanding) to the original surface?
Might be something like a cleaner or polish residue on it.
