Is it a Shimano chain? If so and you didn't seat the joining pin completely, the chain will be tight at that spot. As you push in the pin it will suddenly get a bit easier to turn the chain tool's handle as it reaches full insertion. Be sure the head of the special pin is almost flush with the side plates.
