You can paint latex over oil primer but not finish, you can paint oil over latex. As a contractor I will recommend you prime with oil and top coat it with latex, then next time all you need do is paint latex. Now I said as a contractor because I dont want to be called back for a problem, If it's just a door or cabinet I might etch it real well to degloss it and break the shield of finish and only a top grade latex finish would I use and hope for the best.
