Geting error while creating a dir through CREATE DIRECTORY command

Hi Gurus,

When I'm trying to create a dir through this command with logged in as SYS

CREATE DIRECTORY pump_dir AS 'd:\temp\pump_dir';

I'm getting the error
Error starting at line 1 in command:
CREATE DIRECTORY pump_dir AS 'd:\temp\pump_dir'
Error at Command Line:1 Column:18
Error report:
SQL Error: ORA-00955: name is already used by an existing object
00955. 00000 - "name is already used by an existing object"

Any ideas how I can create a dir and grant access to a different user.
