.gitignore is not ingoring bitbucket-pipelines.yml

I added bitbucket-pipelines.yml line to .gitignore file before creating the actual bitbucket-pipelines.yml file on the remote repo. Yet, when I try to push changes from my local project to the remote, git asks me to pull this file to local project first. So why isn't it being ignored?

Hi! If the bitbucket-pipelines.yml was not tracked previous to the addition to the .gitignore, it should be completely ignored. Can you share your .gitignore file with us in case we find something wrong?



Hi. Thank you for the reply. Yes, it was untracked prior to the creation of the file. Here's the contents of my .gitignore file. The same file I have both at local and remote repos:


It looks like it is tracked in bitbucket, not in my local repo, because when I delete it from local, there are no changes in git status, but when I try to push other changes to remote, it says that there are mismatch on remote, so I have to pull first, which I think bitbucket tells my local git that there's a mismatch, even though the same .gitignore file containing bitbucket-piplienes.yml entry is located on remote repo as well.
