>>therefore use below statement

It depends on the recovery.  noresetlogs  may actually be the correct action.  Anyway, both options have alreday been posted.

issue the  'alter database open' with either resetlogs or noresetlogs.

Which parameter to use depends on what you want to do.

What was done to the database earlier? Did you recreate the control file?
Was the database restored? What steps did you follow to restore.
Any problem in opening the database in resetlogs? Did you give it a try?

After recovering, it is required to reset the logs in certain case, therefore use below statement, but you will loose log history.

alter database open resetlogs;
