I can’t change my username

I have a problem with usernames and I wish someone could explain what is happening. 
In this text I will use “username1”, “username2” and “username3” to explain my situation.

So, I have my main instagram account (username1) and I made a second profile (username2) which I don’t use, it’s only purpose is to save that name so no one else can take it. Now, I changed this username2 name to username3 and I want my main profile which is username1 to be called username2 but instagram won’t let me. It says username is not available. Do I have to wait a few hours, days or is this permanent?
