Cannot create S3 Bucket on another region after deleting on the other


I had S3 bucket created on Region1 and then we decided to use Region2 so what I did is just deleted the bucket and tried to create it (with the same name) on that Region2.

But it keep throwing

A conflicting conditional operation is currently in progress against this resource. Please try again.

Probably I have to wait but not sure how much (waited about 15 minutes)


Bucket names must be unique across entire S3 so you have to wait until your deleted bucket name becomes available for reuse.


The bucket name you choose must be unique across all existing bucket
names in Amazon S3


When you delete a bucket, there may be a delay of up to one hour
before the bucket name is available for reuse in a new region or by a
new bucket owner
