    You were probably changed to Guest805273 when you joined after disconnection. The server does not know that your username was disconnected. Either wait a little or type /msg nickserv ghost username password to kick out your nick so you can switch to it.

    Chances are that the server didn't register the fact that you'd been disconnected and therefore denied you use of your nick as it was still "online" or "active" (usually occurs when you restart your connection/computer). It usually takes a few minutes before the server corrects this but as mentioned earlier you can use the GHOST command to force the server to remove the "active" nick.

    So to go along with what everyone has said without a registered nick you wouldn't have been able to gain entry.
