Multiple SIDs in same database?

Can I create multiple Oracle SIDs in the same Oracle database or do I have to create a different SID using DBCA?

The Oracle SID uniquely identifies that database. You do not create more than one SID for that database. When you create a new database, it will use a different SID than other databases running on that database server.
