I know Glassfish is also a servlet container
and it's a new webserver, but if tomcat is
a decent server why do we need a new server
in the first place?

Tomcat is the reference implementation for the servlet/JSP specifications, in other words, a web server and servlet container.

GlassFish is the reference implementation of the entire JEE specification - it supports EJB, JMS, JavaMail etc. in addition to being a servlet container.
