Tub not draining


I thought of that so I snaked the pipe towards the main drain same results. to the other questions I have no idea it was my grandfathers house he has since passed so I don't know what's going on. Is it a such thing as the pressure not being rightin the pipe?? because when I started to saw the pipe it made a hissing sound l had to make sure I wasn't cutting the gas line lol, so I figured it was a pressure thing idk what.
