The created "figure" is not a "file". "Files" are found on the hard disk, not on the screen, while "figures" are the windows on the screen. Although you can store the contents of a figure to a file in the ".fig" format on the harddisk, you cannot "close" such a file.
I guess, you want to check if a figure with this name is open already. Then exist() is not sufficient, but:
existingFig = findobj(get(0), 'Children', 'flat', 'Name', 'Selected Image');
close(existingFig); % Or "delete()"
If no existing figure is found, existingFig is the empty matrix and close([]) does not perform anything.

@Elysi: if exist('Selected Image', 'file')==0 checks, if there is no file with the name "Selected Image". Because there is most likely no such file, when you did not create it explicitly, the close() command is executed. But this is a very strange test, because you can set any other ununsed file name also:
if exist('ThisFileDoesNotExistBecauseItsNameIsToSTRANGE!', 'file')==0
close('Selected Image');
As I've explained already, the figures do not have any relation to files, and checking, if a certain file name does not exist has no connection to closing a figure.
Instead of searching the name of the figure, using the handle would be more convenient and clear:
figHandle = figure();
if ishandle(figHandle) % Not closed before

I tried running the same thing and it worked, however, I assume that your main problem is in the if statement, not the close line.
Run the script in debugger and see if it's actually going through the if statement. Look up how the exist() outputs work because 1 is not always the output. I would suggest changing it to something like
if exist('Selected Image', 'file')~=0
close 'Selected Image'
