OSX Sierra keychain password

Hoping someone has some ideas here - in over my head

After three years in storage, retrieved my 27” iMac and of course, can’t remember my login password. Went in back door to access the machine, I can’t find or remember my original keychain password and pop-ups keep asking for it.

Any ideas?

macOS Sierra

Thanks mate

Used this a few days ago to access and create a new password;

“new login keychain -- what MacOS uses to store your passwords will be created, but your old keychain will remain saved on your Mac. If you ever remember your old password, you'll be able to unlock the old keychain.”

Will try the wired path and try to access through admin.

Thanks again
