in v$database you can retrive the CREATED date for the database.
in your os check for creation times on the binay files under $ORACLE_HOME files

Hi,

the attached script will show you the installed features and the dates of their first usage, if any.

Maybe it could help you getting closer to what you're trying to find out.

Col first_usage_date format a10     heading "First use"

Select decode(detected_usages,0,2,1) nop,

Checking the binary files will not tell you when they were originally installed.  Anytime that the executable is relinked (i.e. patching), the dates on the binaries would change.
