Empty p-tags before image with caption in classic text editor

Adding an image with caption in "classic" text editor (my preferred editor) will result in empty p-tags before figure tags and non-surrounded text after <figure>.

Press the Media Button in WordPress classic text editor to insert an image with caption. Following output is generated:

[caption id="attachment_1" align="alignleft" width="150"]<img src="url-to-image.jpg" alt="alt" width="150" height="150" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-1" /> captiontext[/caption] This is text for my Test post with Image.

When using the classic text editor, the output begins with an empty paragraph tag like:

<p></p> <!-- empty p-tag before figure-tag -->
<img src="...">
" This is text for my Test post with Image." <!-- no tags at all -->

when saving afterwards in "visual editor" (or editing and saving the whole post) the output is correct:

<img src="...">
<p>This is text for my Test post with Image.</p>

Please have a look at this.
