I had same problem and here is fix in our case.

  • from central admin detach the content database( attached to prolematic web app).
  • wait for couple of min or if you can reset IIS
  • attach the content database to the web app using the powershell Mount-SPContentDatabase "MyDatabase" -DatabaseServer "MyServer" -WebApplication http://sitename

If it fails, do again but give some break between attaching and detaching.
