Necromancer's Origins Can't Post

Such a person confuses me. The Necromancer's purpose of setting his domain in the West
and belatedly announcing it begs the question why?
Think about it. Such a person had to exist before Sauron arrived. Who was this Necromancer
that Sauron took as a disguised?

Heard at White Council Meeting #55.
Geez Galadriel. Who did you rent out Amon Lanc to this time? Before it was the Pumpkin Pie Demon,
and before that it was the Dragon Tooth Fairy. You have to do better background checks got it?

***
The White Council speak of the Necromancer as though he was known to them before and destroyed.
Then why would a defeated power resurrect in the heart of other powers (Thranduil, Galadriel, and Gondor).
Why not go into Moria or Mordor or the Oathbreakers? Why not become a threat elsewhere and then migrate to Mirkwood?
It makes no sense. Even if he was an acolyte of the original Necromancer. It is dumb to set up shop
in southern Mirkwood without a great army to resist attack.

My view is that the original Necromancer was out East and destroyed by the Blue Wizards.
Then Sauron arrives letting the name Necromancer be heard under tree. This will give doubt to the
good powers in the West. If he was a necromancer, that means he can control spirits, no necessary
have an undead army. Then where would he get spirits to control? Mirkwood is not full of men and elves right?
I think the White Council came together to understand the stupidity of this new neighbor. If the neighbor
would be dangerous, then he would be evicted. Did Saruman suspect it was Sauron before Gandalf visited?
