As was to be expected. You opened the database with resetlogs, so you crossed the Rubicon, and pulled the bridge. You need to reset the database to a previous incarnation. As you are running without catalog that is not readily possible. You might want to check whether the documentation has a section called 'Recovering through resetlogs'.
Please disregard the comments of Mr. Hurley. As usual he only thinks he knows what he is talking about. As he doesn't know what he is talking about he starts to blame the software.
