I have not looked at your jpg. In future, please follow the forum guidelines and use/copy paste, with code tags, from SQL*Plus when youi want to show something.

However, I assume that your datbase is not open:
orcl>
orcl> select current_scn from v$database;

CURRENT_SCN
-----------
    5519895

orcl> alter database close;

Database altered.

orcl> select current_scn from v$database;

CURRENT_SCN
-----------
          0

orcl>

update: corrected my code tags!

v$instance.database_status is not relevant to this issue. Look up the view definition and you will see.
