ORA-01658: unable to create INITIAL extent for segment in tablespace name
Cause: Failed to find sufficient contiguous space to allocate INITIAL extent for segment being created.

Action: Use ALTER TABLESPACE ADD DATAFILE to add additional space to the tablespace or retry with a smaller value for INITIAL.

If your tablespace is heavily fragmented then a short-term fix would be to create the table with a smaller INITIAL extent value.

To give an indication of your fragmentation you can run::

Set LINESIZE 132
Set PAGESIZE 100
Column KBytesFree Format 999,999,990.00
Column KBytesLargest Format 999,999,990.00
Column KBytesSmallest Format 999,999,990.00
Column NoOfSegments Format 999,999,990
Select TABLESPACE_NAME
       ,Sum(Bytes)/1024 KBytesFree
       ,Max(Bytes)/1024 KBytesLargest
       ,Min(Bytes)/1024 KBytesSmallest
       ,Count(*) NoOfSegments
  From DBA_FREE_SPACE
Group By TABLESPACE_NAME

In the long term you should address fragmentation issues by re-assessing your storage and defragmenting the tablespace(s).
