The Maquis were an integral aspect of DS9, created for DS9. They appeared in 1994 in the 2-parter that introduced Sisko's old buddy Lt. Commander Calvin Hudson. That's about 9 months prior to the debut of Voyager with Caretaker.

The storyline for the Maquis is woven directly into the Bajoran and Cardassian conflict. They were always intended to play the role they played on DS9 as a recurring group of antagonists.
