[Solved] symbolic link problem

I have placed the map firefox in opt/.
Now I want to place a symbolic link in /usr/bin.

This is the output of my terminal:

ecmporter@peek:~$ sudo -i
[sudo] password for ecmporter: 
root@peek:~# ln -s /opt/firefox/firefox /usr/bin/firefox
ln: creating symbolic link `/usr/bin/firefox/firefox': File exists
root@peek:~# firefox
-bash: firefox: command not found
root@peek:~# sudo rm -r /usr/bin/firefox
root@peek:~# ln -sf /opt/firefox/firefox /usr/bin/firefox
root@peek:~# firefox
-bash: firefox: command not found

I cannot view the file /usr/bin/firefox after opening /usr/bin/. Why not?
And why can I not start firefox?
