Default new guitar string buzzing

Hey, so, the low E string on my guitar was broken (I know).
I went to get a new one at the local place, and decided to try and put it on the guitar myself, which isn't something I've done before.

Once I got the string on at home, I noticed a buzzing sound whenever I strummed it. Is there any reason why this could be happening?

The guitar is a yamaha acoustic

Could be a number of reasons. Did you use the correct gauge string? Did you keep it nice and tight while you were winding it on the tuners? Where's the buzz coming from? The nut? The bridge? The fretboard?

More information needed.

It sounds like it's coming from the nut mainly.
I think it's wound tightly enough.
Not sure if the gauge is right -- is I'll try to find what gauge the guitar came with on the internet.
