MySqlSyntaxErrorException: table already exists

I have seen several related questions and their answers, but it is not helping my case.

I have a Spring boot application, where I have created entities using Jhipster, plus I have added some manual changelog changesets myself.

I have a Doctor entity, which contains a One-to-Many uni-directional relationship with 'Specialty' where 'Doctor' is the owner of the relationship. So I specified a Join table that will store Doctor and Specialty foreign keys.

@OneToMany(fetch = FetchType.EAGER, cascade = CascadeType.ALL) @JoinTable( name="T_DOCTOR_SPECIALTY", joinColumns = @JoinColumn( name="doctor_id"), inverseJoinColumns = @JoinColumn( name="specialty_id") ) private List<Specialty> specialties = new ArrayList<>();

For this, I added a changelog file, that even contains the tag to ignore specialty if it already exists,

<changeSet id="20150415081455" author="waqas"> <preConditions onFail="MARK_RAN">  <tableExists tableName="T_DOCTOR_SPECIALTY"/>     <changeSet id="20150415081221" author="waqas">  <createTable tableName="T_DOCTOR_SPECIALTY">  ...

Then, I create a new database with no tables and run the application, but I get the following exception:
