First campaign

Hello people, I am going to start DMing for a group of my friends, some experienced power gamers, some roleplayers, and some newbies... I have come up with a plot but I am struggleing with developing apropriate encounters...

Advice request within :)
Okay, so, my basic plot is that in the service of a very new evil demigod, an Atarnia (I forget which book this is from, but they are a kind of demonic wizard) is working at corrupting good people and then killing them, turning them into larva for the god to use instead of having them become petitioners or proxies of good. He's doing this with the help of an Unseelie Nymph/ Half Fiend druid on the prime material plane and then a Night Hag on the planes... So I have a couple ""Bosses"" Set up. Only problem I am having is that I think I have potentially made the Nymph too tough for them to be able to kill... and then I realize that I have done this on purpose because I really don't want to kill her off... I guess she's charmed me despite me being gay hehe...

Anyway, the group is most likely going to consist of a sorceror, a wizard, a rogue, a fighter, a cleric, and maybe a monk... Im wondering, what level should a group like that be to contend with this... The Nymph is a 5cr npc... when I add her druid class levels to it and her half fiend template it comes out to a whopping 12... Unless I get CR wrong... and I know CR is messed up, but I was hoping it'd act as SOME kind of guide...

Any help you could offer me for this, the first leg of the campaign, I'd really apreciate it. If I didnt give enough info, it's either because i didnt realize it'd be needed or I didn't know it, so ask me if you think you might have something to say but dont know enough about what i'm doing :).
