Not advisable: While there are no contraindications to these drugs combined, it is not a great idea to stress your kidneys so much. Accutane can cause kidney problems as can creatine, so combining the two will likely increase the risk, even if you drink a lot of fluids. I'd talk to your doctor, but I would also tell you to avoid the creatine if you were my patient.

Not Recommended: As a pediatrician I need to caution you about the use of creatine - we still don't know what the potential long-term effects are. It is really discouraged in growing teens. Taking the combination you mentioned puts a lot of stress on your kidneys, even if you are drinking "plenty" of water.
