It is not quite cleare, at which stage of creation it stucks, but one of possibilities is - after dbca is ready, netca will be launched, but its   window is overlapped by dbca, so to bring it into foreground, one should either move the dbca window around or utilize keyboard ... But maybe it is totally another issue of course.
