"Emissary" was the initial point of contact between the Prophets and Corporeal Entities.
Not including the Bajoran poet whom the Prophets rescued 200 years before Sisko even arrived on DS9, or all the orbs sent over thousands of years to Bajor, or the Sarah Prophet controlling a woman to mate with Joseph Sisko, and so forth...
But that's exactly my point. You're looking at it linearly. Yes, they would seem to be earlier points of contact from our linear perspective. But for the Prophets themselves, that kind of distinction is meaningless. "Emissary" was the 'first time' they met Sisko. Everything else happened as a consequence of that.

TrekLit/DS9-R fans! Want a different vision of the Ascendant conflict and the DS9 time gap?

Read DS9 SEASON 10 and DS9 SEASON 11 !
