   I have tried by using this query in a loop of 5000 and run the loop
in 2 different connections with different users, but could not get the
   What I understood from sql statement is that it will insert new
rows when there are new/different connections, so simply running this
sql statement
   from 2 connections might not insert any new rows.
   a. Are there any new connections happening, how this table is
getting populated?
   b. How did you concluded that above sql statement leads to error,
because this error doesn't seem to occur in path of above sql
   c. Are there any other sql statements in connection where you see this error?

   Can you explain a bit more about your scenario, so that this error
can be reproduced easily.

Some comments about SQL statements:
     a. table name provided as part of schema (mystat) is different
from one used in sql statement(my_stat)
     b. definition of sequence mystat_sequence is missing, although it
doesn't seem to be necessary, but if you can provide the definition
you are using
         then it will be better.
