You are not doing anything wrong. Digital Ocean has reported a delay of in the creation of new droplets due to maintenance. Check out the warning that I got from them:

Scheduling Delay

We have deployed code to redistribute our scheduling events and expect events to process through over the next hour, events other than creates should process now in their usual time.

Due to overwhelming demand in our new AMS2 Data Center, we are experiencing a 15 minute delay in events processing, we have deployed code to redistribute our scheduling and expect events to clear within the next 30 minutes.
Happened to me a few times, just go make yourself a nice cup o' coffee and enjoy the wait.

Yes! Wait a few minutes and the problem solved.
