is this user exists on the Machine, where the SQL Server is running?
if not then you have to create the user over there or over that domain name or over that network.

Just to be clear you are adding a Login and not a User, right?

If so, can you share the T-SQL you are using?

The error can be 1 of 2 things.
1) you are trying to add a local login on a machine that does not contain that login.
2) you are trying to add a Domain account that does not exist or is inaccessible to that user trying to create it.
