I have solved this problem by erasing the full partition.
But,I still want to know HOW the -p option of mkfs.jffs2 
recognize the size of the mtd partition? I mean,if the size 
of the image is 2MB and the partition is 10 MB,how can I create
a image with padding the image to the size of the partition?
Maybe I misunderstood and the -p option should be used in some 
way else?

It disappeared after I erase all the partition.
