I am tring to create a new database (oct). I have made the changes in the init(oct).ora. As stated in the documentations, I have started the instance in 'nomount' mode.
However,when I try to create a database using
create database oct;
I get a error
ORA-01501: CREATE DATABASE failed
ORA-01101: database being created currently mounted by some other instance.
I have stopped all other instances, but still facing this problem.
