    Is this structure correct "Although......but......"

    Dear Teachers,

    I know the following sentence is correct :
    ' Although she smiled, she was angry. ',

    but I don't know whether this one also sounds correct to a native speaker:
    ' Two friends although are not in conflict, but refuse to visit each other.'.

    It is said when this word ' Although' is used, the word ' But' shall not be used in one sentence. What's your opinion, please?

    Thank you.
