Whether there will be an database issue on accessing(read/write) the object from application and performing Data Definition Language(DDL) (adding column using pin_deploy, creating index) on the same object simultaneously?

During the deployments:
 One Server (Ex. Server A) will be used for regular applications and other Server(ex. Server B) will be used for deployment.
