Having problem with FD lens and adapter - help!

I've recently purchased a Nex 5N and wanted to use legacy lenses on it. I bought a FD Nex adapter, with lock-open ring, and a Canon 50mm f/1.4 FDn (bayonet fitting).

Today I tried to use the combination for the first time and it hasn't gone well. I struggled to attach the lens to the adapter - even after reading a lot of information online. When it was attached I couldn't change aperture using the aperture ring (prior to mounting it on the adapter I tested the ring and it worked fine). The lens appears to be stuck wide open. Now I can't remove the lens from the adapter as I can't move the lock-open ring on the adapter.

Help!
