Refer to your log files + the problem will show up.

There's really no guessing the reason. Better to know (review log files) than guess.

Where your log files exist will depend on how your TomCat instance was installed.

Checked: Java jdk 8 installed and JAVA home pointing to the installation root directory
Open a command prompt at Tomcat's root folder and run "catalina start". By doing this you will see nay error in the command prompt.
