I have netapp storage fs250, I would like to connect a redhat server to it, I have two options:
1- NFS mount
2- ISCSI
Which one is better and why?
Also, how I can do multipath mounting? I have only 2 network card attached to the NetApp, one is for NFS/CIFS connected to the normal LAN, and the other one is ISCSI connected to a special VLAN. How I can do multipath with that?

finally, is it recommended to move Oracle file (dbf and control) files to the netapp through nfs and iscsi?

Please let me know.

Oracle does not support keeping database files in NFS mounted filesystems AFAIK... so I think you don't really have an option here. Even if it did... why bear with the nfs servers overhead?
