A number of setting can cause a delay.

Is the camera's shutter delay active?
Is the "Red Eye Reduction" active?
Is the flash mode to "Rear Shutter Sync"?
Are you in the Master/Commander mode for the SB-900 and have any remote groups active?

George is almost certainly smack on the money with one of the first two.

The flash mode selection is done by pressing the flash button on the side of the popup flash and rotating the back dial. Red-eye reduction would be the eye symbol, which will put a similar delay into your flash shooting.
