Cannot change the SPO URL to a URL of an old site after changing the original sites URL

Copper Contributor

I needed to change the URL of a sharepoint site from .../sites/sitename to .../sites/sitename-public since we are using it for external only sharing. Then when I go to change the sitename of the internal site to the old name of the original site it gives me an error that I cannot use the sitename of .../sites/sitename because it already exists. 


My assumption is the original URL that I want to use is somenow cached and I cannot use it.
