No you cannot declare this marriage as first marriage.

When you registered your second marriage, you are required disclose about first marriage in the  application for  marriage registeration.

Along with the form you are required to furnish an affidavit where you will declare that you were a divorcee.

Please do not get your second marriage registered before the registrar office as it will attract penal offense i.e. section 494 of Indian Penal Code. Only after giving a divorce to your first husband you can register your second marriage.
