Have a tablespace to repair - its a new database so dataloss no problem.
The guy who created it originally is "not available" I get this error:
SQL> conn / as sysdba
SQL> shutdown
ORA-01109: database not open

Database dismounted.
ORACLE instance shut down.
SQL> startup
ORACLE instance started.

'/u01/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/Db_1/dbs/APP_DATA_THREE' And quite right this file is not present - I expect it was deleted at the unix prompt.
And is should not be created there in the first place I suppose. So I thought log in and find out which tablespace own this datafile: sqlplus system/XXXXX

ORA-01033: ORACLE initialization or shutdown in progress

Unsurprisingly cannot log in - database not open.

From the conn / as sysdba no joy either.

SQL> select tablespace_name from dba_tablesspaces; select tablespace_name from dba_tablesspaces


ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01219: database not open: queries allowed on fixed tables/views only

So er what can I do to troubleshoot this problem?

Thanks In Anticipation
