Hi,
 I tried to restore my WhatsApp data in my new phone but it took the old restore file.
Now I don't want to again set up my WhatsApp.

Is there any way to restore the latest backup from the app itself(without configuring WhatsApp again)?

Just copy whatsapp folder from your older device to your newer device before launching whatsapp in your newer device for first time

I factory reset my older device.
The backup file is on WhatsApp server only.
What should be done in this case bro?

Dude in that case you can get only backup from server....Local backup can't be retrieved...

How to do that?
Will I have to delete WhatsApp and start all over again?

No you can't get the local backup from older device....Check for restore option in whatsapp in your new device

It's the only way to restore...or try logging in any other phone and restore cloud data and paste in your phone(it's a long process)
