Toilet replacement question

We are currently renovating a guest bath. Previous owners chipped up old tile and poured stained concrete, but left the tile underneath the toilet. Are we correct in assuming we need to chip all this up before laying new tile? The new toilet should rest on the new tile. We just wanted to make sure we wouldn’t be messing anything up with the plumbing of the toilet in terms of heights, etc. see pic for better idea. Any tips anyone can give are greatly appreciated.

I can't clearly make out the picture. Is the flange molded into the concrete? Can you still put flange bolt in it? Is the flange bolted to the floor? Was the old toilet in operating condition when you removed it?

On second look am I correct in saying that the existing tile is depressed or lower than the concrete? Again how are you going to attach the flange? I would chip out the tile and see whats below it. maybe fill it in with a piece of cement board to level it with current floor. Then attach flange and tile up to it.
