why replacing a file doesn’t renew its creation time?

I use windows system. I have two files in two directory. One with creation time 2015/5/15 15:35, the other with creation time 2015/5/15 9:48. After I replace the second one with the first one, the modified time of the two files are the same, but why the creation time of the second file doesn’t change and is still 2015/5/15 9:48?!
