I have a database export dump. I do not know much about recovery of the Oracle database. I would prefer to recover the database than create a new database and import. Can you help?
STARTUP MOUNT ALTER DATABASE OPEN RESETLOGS;
If that does not work, your only option is to drop the entire database, recreate it and then import the db's contents from the export dump file.
