A permission conflict happens when you try to add a file to a folder that you don’t have access to.
In order to preserve your work and the permissions on that folder, Dropbox will instead create a new folder within your Team Member Folder as “[filename] (permission conflicts)”.

The best way to resolve a permission conflict is to request edit access to the original folder and add your file. You can then delete the permission conflict file.
If you want edit access to a folder, you can request it directly from the file owner. You can reach out to your admin if you don’t know who the file owner is.
