The error is simply you didn't create a ZFS dataset for the zone.

zfs create zones/test

assuming you have a zone pool.

It's a ZFS pool./
An OpenSolaris zone requires a dedicated filesystem (ZFS dataset).
Assuming you used the default names, you can create a dedicated dataset that way:
zfs create /rpool/zones
zfs create /rpool/zones/test

and run again your commands replacing /zones/test with /rpool/zones/test.

root@opensolaris:~# zfs create /rpool/zones
cannot create '/rpool/zones': leading slash in name

My mistake:
zfs create rpool/zones
zfs create rpool/zones/test

If it still fails, post "zpool status" and "zfs list" output.

zfs pool has created successful and try to verify the zone before installation it is giving error

root@opensolaris:~# zoneadm -z test verify
/rpool/zones/test must not be group readable.
/rpool/zones/test must not be group executable.
/rpool/zones/test must not be world readable.
/rpool/zones/test must not be world executable.
could not verify zonepath /rpool/zones/test because of the above errors.
zoneadm: zone test failed to verify

zonename: test
zonepath: /rpool/zones/test
brand: ipkg
autoboot: true
ip-type: shared
