How to manually create users with Devise? #1847

In my rails app, besides the user registrations, admins should create, edit and delete user in the backend, too. I have a problem with creating new users through that admin backend.

When I call the UsersController#new action in my browser it opens up the user entry form created by me. When I click on the submit button the Devise::RegistrationsController#create is called but it should call my UsersController#create action.

How do I achvieve to call UsersController#create when using the user creation in the admin backend, and to call Devise::RegistrationsController#create when a user uses the registration?
