Oracle 9i database.
I am trying to recliam space from defrag tables.  so I use the command "move" the large tables, then rebuild its indexes. however, for some reason i notice the size increase instead decrease!

for instance user_tablespace  size=28.249.625
after I alter the table move and rebuild index the size become
user_tablespace  size=29.249.625

how could this happen?
