Java api put index settings and mappings ResourceAlreadyExistsException

I try to make an index using the JAVA API like this

            .addMapping("event", mappingBuilder)

but i get this exception Caused by: [index/fQUXl2xIT6CQcAuE4EMQGw] ResourceAlreadyExistsException[index [index/fQUXl2xIT6CQcAuE4EMQGw] already exists]

when i go after to kibana i see my index is there, and when i comment out the above lines there is no index in kibana

If the index already exists, you can't create it again.

But this is the first and only time i try to create it

Apparently no.

May be something wrong in your code? Like you are calling two times the same code?
