Since you are anew DBA, I suggest that you use dbca to CREATE DATABASE.

I see twp possibilities:
Either you are not using the initialization file that you think you are using, or you have some unprintable characters in that file that make Oracle see a line break in memory_target.
I would begin by deleting that file. What error do you get then?

Dear Member,
BlackSwan replied is the best answer that you should use DBCA. Why?

1. You can say that in Oracle DB there are two DBs are running logically, One database which you can say metadata and second is users DB (Users schemas) and Metadata (Sys Schema. SysAUX Schema and more system users) which are keeping information for user schemas for DDLs, DMLs and DCLs. and it is not just a simple database lot of things involved like security, audits links and rights so on. The best is to create using DBCA.

Welcome to the forum. Please read our OraFAQ Forum Guide and How to use [code] tags and make your code easier to read

I know that you are trying to assist, but your descrption couldo cause a lot of confusion. It would be more accurate to say that in an Oracle database there is a data dictionary owned by the SYS user which contains all the Oracle supplied objects and the metadata describing user created objects.
Are you perhaps drawing an analogy with SQL Server? I have heard SQL Server people say that an Oracle schema is like a SQL Server database.

Works for me. I would try the prior suggestions. Your init file has issues.

Show parameter won't work if it's not started.

@OP try:

sqlplus / as sysdba
startup pfile='&YOURPFILEPATH'
