It fails because startx will try to run another instance of Xorg. You can install Xephyr and use startcinnamon (I guess there il such script, just like the startkde script that won't launch another Xorg) with it. You might have other issues though with a complex DE such as Cinnamon; I'm thinking of pulseaudio and dbus. I can run fluxbox and i3 through Xephyr and, with little more configuration, another monitor, mouse and keyboard you can achieve a multiseat setup.
