Battery replacement

So I recently purchased a flat battery to replace the barrel battery that had started to corrode on the one side in my 500+... here is my first mistake rather than desoldering the old battery I just wiggled it and snapped it off leaving the pins in the board which I have seen other people do and then desolder the pins out later. Which was fine on the one pin applied heat came pretty much straight out, however on the pin that had the corrosion I’ve tried to do the same thing and it won’t budge how can I get it to loosen up? I’ve tried adding solder to it and heating on both sides with extra solder and it still won’t come lose...

Any help or advise would be great
