Illustrator : 'deleting' overlay compound path


I made a circle, and above that I put a compound path which I download from internet, a custom B, I want to just take the circle without the custom B, I did it before, let say a circle with star above, if I want to take the circle without star I will use path finder, but it seems not working for compound path any solution?

Objects of the same group won't behave normal using the pathfinder. Having a compound for the B would suffice. I think you don't need to have it in a group or in a group together with the background, respectively other elements.
