find acting weird

Good day!

I'm trying to remove the directories with find -exec and i've
encountered that for some reason the behaviour is strange. I've tested
with 4.1.20, 4.2.27 and 4.4.2.
I'm doing the following:

devfe:~>mkdir -p findtest/a/b
devfe:~>cd findtest/
devfe:~/findtest>find . -name a -exec rm -rf {} \;
find: ./a: No such file or directory
