Quantum number at n=3 and l=2

Hello,
From my understand, at n=3, it is possible to have l=2 (since the maximum l is n-1). However, at n=3, it think it is impossible to have l=2, since that is the d orbital, which only exists from n=4.
Can someone explain this to me? It would be great if you can give an element that fits that as well.
Thank you.
