In brief: 2 problems

Wisdom tooth removal is unrelated to a molar crown.
However if you have a wisdom tooth that is creating a problem for the molar that needs a crown, then you need to get rid of the problem first before the crown can be done.

More information would be helpful.
However, let me try to guess your situation and assume that I am right. If the wisdom tooth requires removal or the fabrication of a crown on the tooth just in front of the wisdom tooth is somehow compromised due to the position of the wisdom tooth, the better way to proceed is to remove the wisdom tooth first and wait for healing of the socket.
