Hi, how long ago was the old user deleted?  It will stay in the Deleted Users folder for 30 days after deletion so you may recover it if needed.   After 30 days it will be permanently purged.  In the meatime, you would not be able to create a new account with the same ID.

 

You can manually purge the deleted account if needed using PowerShell.  You can check out how at https://practical365.com/exchange-server/permanently-remove-deleted-users-office-365/
