Help restoring/recovering 8i using RMAN

I need to restore and recover an Oracle8i database using RMAN. When I want to connect to the target database from RMAN, I get the message ORA-01033.

I must restore and recover an Oracle8i database using RMAN, the target database is empty (only started in nomount state) and listener is running on server. When I want to connect to the target database from RMAN, the message to refuse the connection is ORA-01033. I have defined in my init.ora remote_login_password=exclusive.
The ORA-01033 error message is telling you "ORACLE initialization or shutdown in progress." To solve this problem, issue the following:

1. SVRMGRL
2. CONNECT / AS SYSDBA
3. SHUTDOWN ABORT
4. STARTUP NOMOUNT

You'll have to perform a SHUTDOWN ABORT before you can startup the database in NOMOUNT mode. Then you should be able to perform a full restore of your database.
