Sorry for this question, because I am aware that this is one of the more common questions, but let me explain the situation.
I had a vocal teacher (pop singer female, 10 years of experience) for 1 year then I decided to take lessons with someone else (Professional opra singer male, 30 years of experience) then all of a sudden my progress skyrocketed.
After 3 months with the opra singer I was able to grow my range from E2 to B6 (No joke). I can still sing in chest voice up to C6 with a good presentable quality of tone.
My opra singer saied that by the tone of my speaking voice I would be classified as a Baritone.

Now, let's get to the problem. I still have lessons left with my first teacher (pop singer) and today she told me that because I am a Baritone my voice will never sound good if I sing songs in the tenor range.
I personally prefere the tenor range when I listen to songs, so what she said was very discouraging for me.
The thing is my new more experienced opera singing teacher said the opposite. He said that I can learn to sing tenor beautifully. All it takes is long enough vocal cords to produce the tone in the first place, a perfect technique and the faith that it's possible.

Now people please tell me who is right. Because what my old teacher said discouraged me alot. I believe I will be able to sing in tenor range with the highest vocal quality possible, but now im standing in a turning point either my opra singer is right and the pop singer is wrong and I will have to learn that my old teacher is not as competent and skilled as I thought OR
She was right and I'm chasing something that will never happen( which is sing beautifully in the range I feel sound most beautiful to me (tenor))

I am male 24 years old, just in case this is important in any way

Thank you for taking the time
