That depends on the relative priorities of the interrupts.

If the new one is higher, it interrupts the current ISR, which gets control
back when the new interrupt is finished.

If it is the same or lower priority, then it waits until the current ISR is
finished and gets control next.

Does this clarify things? If not, please describe your situation.
Currently it sounds like you are racking your brains on a homework problem.
