Can’t link two Apple IDs to phone for iMessage ?

I’m trying to add my other email to my phone so that people can iMessage me via email. It keeps saying “this email address is not available. Choose a different address”. 

The email was created yesterday and is not linked to any other devices. I don’t understand what I’m doing wrong.

    You can only have one Apple ID per Apple device.

    So if one of your email addresses is associated with a different Apple ID, then you cannot use it.
