your path must have had the home1 before the home2  when you invoked dbca


easily fixed though, assuming the two homes are identical,  just edit the /etc/oratab and change the path

Oracle database files don't need to be created in the ORACLE_HOME directory tree.  In fact, I always prefer to have the data, log and control files for Oracle databases *OUTSIDE* of the ORACLE_HOME.  That way, I can manage the space for and backups of the database separate from the ORACLE_HOME.  I also re-direct log and trace files outside of the ORACLE_HOME so the size of that stays static unless I'm installing a patch.

I agree with sdstuber's suggestion: just edit your /etc/oratab file so it points to your binaries.  That files doesn't have to point to your data files.   It only needs to know where your Oracle binaries are.
