How tight should toilet flange be?

Really quick question.

Bathroom remodel. My ABS 3" sewer pipe was cut just below the finished floor. I am installing a toilet flange with a metal ring that goes on the outside of the sewer pipe.

It seems I can only push it on maybe an inch before it gets super tight. Won't go all the way down. Are these tapered?

Do I need to cut the pipe down more or will the glue make it goe down further?

I assume dry fitting will be restrictive, but I'd hate to glue it and find it won't seat flush to the floor!

Smaller cans of pipe glue have smaller applicators. The brush of the smallest can will probably squeeze in there.

There's also these:

I'd glue, though, if possible.
