I have the checked any open transactions which have locked the "Model" database, But no any processes were locked for this database.
Everything were OK with this database. Finally i have checked the processes or connections to this databases in process, And one connection was from Management studio.
The script to find connection of "Model" database.
where dbid = DB_ID('model')
After disconnecting from "Model" database i have tried one more time to create a new database.
Then i was able to sucessfully create it. This is becuase of new database is created from "Model" database.
