Encountering error while cloning a production database

I want to clone a production database into a test server. I created the control file. Then from Service Manager I opened the listener and Oracle service. But if I connect using SQL*Plus, it's giving me this error: "ORA-01033: ORACLE initialization or shutdown in progress." Please help me out.

I want to clone a production database into a test server. I restored the datafile from the production db to the test server and then ran the following command:
SQL> startup nomount pfile= E:oracletestdb9.2.0dbsinitTEST.ora
SQL>@e:test.sql
By doing this I created the control file. Then from Service Manager I opened the listener and Oracle service. But if I connect using SQL*Plus, it's giving me this error: "ORA-01033: ORACLE initialization or shutdown in progress." Please help me out.
After you create the control file issue the command:
alter database open
That should make the database available for general use.
