Error is self explainitory:
tablespace not empty, use INCLUDING CONTENTS option

drop tablespace EXAMPLE INCLUDING CONTENTS;

also look into:  AND DATAFILES

use below query to confirm that there are objects in this tablespace

select segment_name from dba_segments where tablespace_name='EXAMPLE';

This will confirms that a table has been created in the tablespace EXAMPLE.

so it is essential to drop the tablespace and the contents in it so to fix this problem do the following:-

drop tablespace EXAMPLE including contents and datafiles;

This will fixed the issue.

The option INCLUDING CONTENTS AND DATAFILES will removes the physical files.
