... a wild guess here: make sure your initTEST1.ora is ready and do
Username: / as sysdba
SQL> startup nomount
If the instance comes up then everything is fine and you can actually
start your script with the CREATE DATABASE command. You _can_not_ do a
CREATE DATABASE with no instance running. Since you do not have a
database yet but only have (hopefully) created the initTEST1.ora file
you need to start the instance before creating the actual database.
Hope this helps.
