  • You can mount this content database to existing sp2013 web application which will force the upgrade of the content database but then you can open the site collection and then force the upgrade. You can also upgrade the site using PowerShell. Upgrade-SPSite

    Just note that the 2010 database must not have the site created in the root "/". A web application can not have two root sites.  If you Product site is managed path then you can attach the db otherwise you must create a new web application, mount then upgrade the site and later use Backup/restore or Import/Export to move the site to your existing 2013 web application.

  • Hi adil,

    You can upgrade the database using database attach/detach method:

    Then after attach the new database and upgrade the web application, you can create a new site collection in the web application.
