I recommend that you create a sequence, and then reference it when you are creating new records.  A sequence allows for an unique set of numbers to be assigned within a range that you desiginate -- for a primary key like this, we usually begin at 1 and don't set an upper limit.  

Then, it's simply INSERT INTO test test_id, col1, col2 VALUES(your_sequence.nextval, some_col1, some_col2).

>>then i have  select col1, col2from table 2
If you want to insert data from table test into table2 using a select, use row_number from your previous question:

If you want a distinct value on inserts, then use the sequence as dvz has suggested.

What version are you using?  In Oracle 12, you can create a column as an identity.
