your database must be in nomount state:
try to shutdown database and start in nomount state:
startup nomount

Oracle express edition is a complete package that installs a database by default.
So I suppose that there is no way to install a 2nd database.

Please follow directions on http://st-curriculum.oracle.com/tutorial/DBXETutorial/html/module2/loaddata2.htm

to see how to create a new structure.

This is the complete tutorial: http://st-curriculum.oracle.com/tutorial/DBXETutorial/index.htm

Tolomir is right... if you're already in a "mount" state, then there is already a database created.   An instance can only have one database.  You would need to delete the pre-created database and create a new one.  

Why not just use the database provided? (probably name "ORAC" or something)

The entire management can be done with the webinterface that comes with oracle XE.

So you should use this to adapt the database to you needs.

Follow the instructions (in flash) from this site http://st-curriculum.oracle.com/tutorial/DBXETutorial/index.htm and you should be able to solve the problem.
