"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.

It was the first time Sisko met them but for the Prophets can be no first time and without them he could've have existed in the first place.
