you cant create a sharepoint group with in a sharepoint group

what you need to do is create each group separate

then on the site add each group and give each the contributor permissions.

The only way to do that is to create AD groups and use those groups within your SharePoint groups. As mccarthybri points out a SharePoint group cannot contain another SharePoint group.
Security is looked at from a content perspective and not from a group perspective, meaning that you can give people permissions on content but you can't have people inheriting permissions from other groups, you can only inherit permissions from content that is higher in the information architecture.
