I've fixed but i don't understand why.

I've done :

oracle@(protected)
SVRMGR>connect internal as sysoper
Password:
Connected.
SVRMGR>startup force
<<some text come here, total system global area etc etc>>
Database mounted.
Database opened.

and now i can connect...

I've restarted the database twice, it works now. But i just don't
understand what happend and why! drive me nuts! Besides this command
overwrite your SGA with a new copy, and i would like to avoid it in the
future....

Any ideas?
