As you might not aware of, clutch linkage cause the clutch disc and the flywheel to become disconnected so that you can shift into first gear, if the clutch linkage is severely out of adjustment you cannot shift at all, however, if your clutch linkage is slightly out of adjustment you can still be able to shift in first gear except that a grinding sound can be heard during gear shifting. This is only a usual possible cause, there might be other cause that can only be determine by actual checking your car transmission.
