i have a Database backup of sharepoint site. I restored it to a SQL DB. Now i went ot Central management > Apllication MGMT > Create new application > and i am trying to createa  new site.
Unfortunately the  site is not being created. It gives me the below error. I have a similar site on sharepoint.

The attach operation cannot continue because another object in this farm already contains the same ID. Each object in a farm must have a unique ID. In order to proceed with the attach operation you must assign a new ID to this database. To attach this database with a new ID, use the "stsadm.exe -o addcontentdb" operation with the -assignnewdatabaseid parameter. Note that if this new database and an existing database contain the same site collections, attaching this database will likely result in orphaned site collections due to conflicts between the two databases"

Are you trying to copy the site with the same content or are you trying to replace the existing site with a backup of its database?

Yes i am trying to create a new site that has almost (90%) of the same content. Use the  old site for testing and use the new site for  production.
