Is that a password that might be the same as Apple iCloud with an Apple Account?  If so, you can attempt to log into your Apple Account, click on Forgot Password and reset your account. That may let you in.   Please let us know.

Newer MacBooks are firmware locked. You will have to visit an Apple store with a proof of purchase and have a tech do it for you with a special utility. Battery reset trick no longer works.

This password is indeed different from iCloud / Apple ID / Admin / User accounts on your Mac.
