>ORA-00059: maximum number of DB_FILES exceeded
you have to recreate the database, with a higher number set during create.
see here the full description of the steps:

As I have mentioned, the database is in nomount state
and cannot perform alter database backup controlfile to trace. The instructions
mentions to perform this step. Need an alternative please.

This problem is resolved. After removing the spfile from $ORACLE\database directory.
It took the change from init.ora file and I was able to open the database with no issues.

Hi,

just out of interest, had you issued :

alter system set db_files = 1000 scope=spfile;

even from nomount state, and restarted the database, you would have been ok.
i ran into this when i restored out data warehouse and this is how i got around it.

just for future reference....
