Did you first delete the library that can't be opened? If not, Photos may still be trying to open that one instead of the backup.

If you hold down the Option key while launching Photos, it will put up a dialog where you can choose or create a library.

I just held down the option key before launching Photos and there was no dialog. Instead the Photos app opened showing just one picture that was saved after the upgrade. Should I delete that picture?
