Surely. You are using the wrong tools for the wrong job. Tools like OUI (Oracle Universal Installer) and DBCA (Database Creation Assistant) all come with a silent mode. Using silent mode, you would need to set up a template only once, and you can use dbca from the commandline to create your database.

Your second problem is you don't even try to understand error messages.
If you would have done so, you would have noticed your SYSTEM tablespace is out of space.
Which is not surprising as a SYSTEM tablespace of 100M is a joke. It needs to be 250M minimum.

Finally: I don't think any serious DBA would like to see third party software create a database. DBAs need to decide where to host the data.
Forcing your customers to create a separate database for your application is unacceptable.
