Thanks. That special grafted knife/scissors with an angle can be of great help.
Actually, I’ve planted the bottom tomato a week before the top one, and some top ones grow faster and bigger than the rootstock! It’s difficult to match the same size stems of the tops and the bottoms unless you have a lot of both, they don’t grow the same rate!
I’ve tried the 45° cut method, with slight movement, the top fell off. I’ve bought the magnifier lamp to double check if the stems were together.
My ideal way is to use this method.

I wonder if I can plant the stem deeply for the final transplant, does the “joint” has to be above the soil?
Is it possible to graft above the first pair of true leaves for the rootstock?
