Hi ! I'd like to make a query from current day minus one business day (not include weekend or bank holidays, I've the following code in the Where clause

TO_CHAR(table0.OPPRETTET_DATO,'yyyymmdd')>= to_char(current date -1 days,'yyyymmdd') or TO_CHAR(table0.avsluttet_DATO,'yyyymmdd') >= to_char(current date -1 days,'yyyymmdd'))

Welcome to the forum.
Please read OraFAQ Forum Guide and How to use [code] tags and make your code easier to read.
Align the columns in result.
Also always post your Oracle version, with 4 decimals, as solution depends on it.

With any SQL or PL/SQL question, please, Post a working Test case: create table (including all constraints) and insert statements along with the result you want with these data then we will be able work with your table and data. Explain with words and sentences the rules that lead to this result.

1/ Your WHERE clause is invalid
2/ You must specify what you current query should return
3/ Your query should likely contain a reference to a table that contains the holidays

The following example assumes that your date columns are of DATE data type as they should be.

-- If you have table0 values as below:
SCOTT@orcl_12.> SELECT * FROM table0 ORDER BY 1
  2  /

Wed 01-Mar-2017 Wed 01-Mar-2017
Thu 02-Mar-2017 Thu 02-Mar-2017

10 rows selected.

-- and you have a table of bank holidays as below
-- (in this example, I have made the previous three days holidays for demonstration purposes):
SCOTT@orcl_12.> SELECT * FROM bank_holidays ORDER BY 1
  2  /

Mon 27-Feb-2017
Tue 28-Feb-2017
Wed 01-Mar-2017

3 rows selected.

-- then you can select values for today and the previous business day, not including weekends or holidays as below
-- (in this example, this is Thursday and the preceding Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, are holidays,
-- so the previous business day was Friday, so the query returns values for today and the preceeding Friday):
SCOTT@orcl_12.> SELECT *
  2  FROM   table0,
  3  	    (SELECT MAX (test_date) AS previous_business_day
  4  	     FROM   (SELECT TRUNC (SYSDATE) - ROWNUM AS test_date
  5  		     FROM   DUAL
  6  		     CONNECT BY LEVEL <= 10)
  7  	     WHERE  TO_CHAR (test_date, 'DY', 'NLS_DATE_LANGUAGE=AMERICAN') NOT IN ('SAT', 'SUN')
  8  	     AND    test_date NOT IN (SELECT bank_holiday FROM bank_holidays))
  9  WHERE  table0.OPPRETTET_DATO >= previous_business_day
 11  AND    TRUNC (table0.OPPRETTET_DATO) NOT IN (SELECT bank_holiday FROM bank_holidays)
 12  AND    TO_CHAR (table0.avsluttet_DATO, 'DY', 'NLS_DATE_LANGUAGE=AMERICAN') NOT IN ('SAT', 'SUN')
 13  AND    TRUNC (table0.avsluttet_DATO) NOT IN (SELECT bank_holiday FROM bank_holidays)
 14  ORDER  BY 1
 15  /
