Direction of door opening

Good afternoon all,

in a small office building I wish to change the layout slightly and add another fire door. My question is, with the existing door near to the corner and this opening up against the wall where I want to install my new door, is there a minimum distance they need to be apart, so as to function correctly and so that people leaving through the doors don’t bump into each other. Does it make a difference what way the doors open. I realise the new door would have to be at least clear of the existing opening door leaf but does it need to be further.If there is, where is the measurement taken from/to. Hope that makes sense.Many thanks.
