try to make this dbms job first run from 11/6 and then after that
on First sunday of the month.
  user_name varchar2(30);
    ( job       => X 
     ,next_date => to_date('05/11/2016 12:00:01','dd/mm/yyyy hh24:mi:ss')
     ,interval  => next_day(last_day(sysdate),'SUN')
     ,no_parse  => FALSE
getting this error.
Error at line 1
ORA-23319: parameter value "06-NOV-16" is not appropriate
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_JOB", line 60
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_JOB", line 139
ORA-06512: at line 5

is this because in interval it's sysdate , or what's wrong please advise.

interval IN VARCHAR2 DEFAULT 'null',

so, correct format:
interval => q'[next_day(last_day(sysdate),'SUN')]'

To be clear - interval needs to passed a string that contains a function that will evaluate to the next date the job should be run.
You've passed it an actual function and so oracle does what it always does - evaluate the function before calling the procedure and pass the result of the function as the parameter.
So you've passed it a date.
