If you specify derby.system.home in your derby.properties file, then 
your database "will be" created in the directory specified by the 
derby.system.home. One way to create the database in another directory 
other than the derby.system.home is to specify the location in the 
jdbcurl. Like
ij> connect 'jdbc:derby:<yourlocation/dbname>;create=true'.

You can refer the derby tuning guide for further reference for 
derby.system.home property
