When i try to delete path with eraser tool or cut it with scissors, path just keep moving outside of selected area, it does not disappear. Maybe it is something that is easy to fix, but i am new to Illustrator.

That's what the eraser does when used on a closed path.

What is preventing you using the scissors tool?

I don't know, that is the problem. It simply doesn't cut.

Are you using it properly? You have to select the point you want to cut on the path, not drag over it which I always used to do...

I don't know what you are after exactly, but maybe it's this. This would be the Path Eraser tool https://youtu.be/qDLhUFpSLGI
