When you are doing a fresh installation you cannot install JIRA on a non-empty database. 
For that purposes you need to give an empty database. 

However, Im not sure if it'll work but you can do the following to try this out:
You install JIRA 1 with empty DB1.
You install JIRA 2 with empty DB2.

Then you point the dbconfig.xml for JIRA 2 server to the DB1. 
You can try doing that. 
I haven't tested it out but I'll be interested to know the result. 

Hi tayyab,

                Thanks for your help its working .

Hi indra,
Did it work for you with single db with two Jira applications?

No, I can be absolutely certain that it did not.

You can not use one database with more than one Jira Server application. 

You can get Data Centre if you want many Jira nodes serving the same data, but a single database for many Jira installs Does.  Not.   Work.
