    Probably the most important consideration, when choosing what type of guitar to learn on, is what type of music will be played on the instrument. If you're a fan of rock music, and want to learn to play rock guitar, starting on electric guitar is a logical choice. If, however, you're a fan of acoustic music, and want to learn to strum your favorite songs, an acoustic guitar is probably best for you. set a budget first, then buy the guitar which gives the best value.

    It is common for the fingers to hurt when starting. Slowly, your fingers will develop calouses and will not hurt anymore.
    It can also depend on the guitar. If action is too high on your guitar strings (results in strings being too high from the fretboard), that will hurt your finger more. So you should check the action before purchasing. High action also is harder to play and causes discomfort since you have to put more pressure.
    Electric guitars dont hurt much in compared to acoustic guitars.
    Again, nylon strings hurt far less in comparison to steel strings.
    Lastly it is upto you to decide which type of songs you want to play and purchase the guitar accordingly. Whichever guitar you choose, check the action and purchase. If you are not sure, you can ask the shop owner about it.
    Good Luck.
