Always Free autonomous databases
Why can't I create a second always free autonomous database?
All tenancies get two Always Free Oracle Autonomous Databases. You can use these databases for transaction processing, data warehousing, Oracle APEX application development, or JSON-based application development. For current regional availability, see the Always Free Cloud Services table in Cloud Regions—Infrastructure and Platform Services.
I should be able to create a second database. I can create a second database, but that will not have the label 'Always free' and as I have unfortunately already found out the expensive way, I will be charged for everything that does not have the label always free,
