Character Set migration Oracle 11g

When i tried to transport the tablespace from linux to windows, during import it shows charachter set error, so I just looked on linux database and windows database character set is different .

Linux is WE8IS08859P1

Windows is AR8ISO8859P6

So i plan to migrate the charater set of windows and change to WE8IS08859P1 character set. Here I provided step by step guide , How to migrate character set. I play with CSSCAN

Step1 : On windows Env

SQL> select * from nls_database_parameters;

PARAMETER                      VALUE
—————————— ————————————
NLS_LANGUAGE                   AMERICAN
NLS_TERRITORY                  AMERICA
NLS_CURRENCY                   $
NLS_ISO_CURRENCY               AMERICA
NLS_NUMERIC_CHARACTERS         .,
NLS_CHARACTERSET               AR8ISO8859P6
NLS_CALENDAR                   GREGORIAN
NLS_DATE_FORMAT                DD-MON-RR
NLS_DATE_LANGUAGE              AMERICAN
NLS_SORT                       BINARY
NLS_TIME_FORMAT                HH.MI.SSXFF AM

21 rows selected.

    My case is to convert WE8MSWIN1252 to AL32HTF8. I follow this instruction but it did not convert. Would you please help? Thanks!
