This means your system has already created a url rewrite for this category.

For simple fix, you can follow these steps manually:

  1. Go to Catalog > Url Redirects and search the exact same as you have in your request path
  2. Then edit that and
  3. Change the target path as you wish.

If you are only trying to show cms page in that category then there is another better approach

  1. Create a new static block
  2. Add your all cms page content in there and save NOW,
  3. Open that category and go to Display and Settings section
  4. Then change "Display mode" to "static block only".
  5. Then in "CMS Block" section choose your cms block and save

This should do the trick.
