Enter user-name: internal
Connected to an idle instance.

SQL> select * from v$instance;
select * from v$instance
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01034: ORACLE not available

I am new at this and I can't seem to find the problem.

You need to first start the instance:

1. start server manager (svrmgrl)
2. connect internal
3. startup pfile=<init.ora file path>
4. Now run the select statement you were running
