    there exists

    Can one use "it exists" instead of "there exists"?

    For instance, can one use:
    1-It exists a solution to our problem.
    instead of:
    2-There exists a solution to our problem.

    If '1' is correct, are there any other verbs that can be used in this way?

    Gratefully,
    Navi.
