Restore-SPSite : The operation that you are attempting to perform cannot be completed successfully. No content databases in the
web application were available to store your site collection. The existing content databases may have reached the maximum number
of site collections, or be set to read-only, or be offline, or may already contain a copy of this site collection. Create anoth
er content database for the Web application and then try the operation again.


Solution :

2- Open Application Management -> Click Manage Content Database
3- Select Your Web Application, Click -> Add Content Database
4- just create new Content Database under your web application and try to restore again.

Created new Content Database but no luck.

This is SP2010 SP1 bug; once you delete the first site collection, it is not deleted. PowerShell can help you

Get the Guid using

Get-SPDeletedSite

Remove-SPDeletedSite –Identity fc5ff8c9-2012-4fd8-b801-9a0efb0e71cd


I hope this helps.
