Received error: ORA-01033: ORACLE initializaton or shutdown in process

Trying to recover the database by shutting down and recover datafile. As a result, trying to log onto Database (sqlplus) but cannot.

I have attempted to log on using "connect /as sysdba" and "connect system/manger as sysdba" but am getting ora-01031: insufficient priviledge"

Any suggestion on how to shutdown database and startup - or in the event of a datafile recovery?

Yur unix account must belong to the "dba" group:

$ id
uid=203(oracle) gid=200(dba) groups=303(nbadmin)

Best regards.
