I had similar problem and in my case the piston was fine. I had rusted and seized handbrake cables but what was worse I had rusted the sliding pins that hold the caliper to the bracket. They were rusted solid inside the bracket so that the caliper couldn’t slide and the outer brake pad was not breaking, only the inner one was pushing on the disc. Whatever your problem is I would recommend to disassemble the bracket, take the pins out (just pull them out with the rubber boots on), clean and grease them and put back in so that they move freely.
