I assume that SELinux is blocking access to the disk header.

Disable it (change to "SELINUX=disabled" in /etc/selinux/config or /etc/sysconfig/selinux, reboot), then retry.

What do you get with

service oracleasm status

?

So your issue could well come from SELinux.

See my suggestions in the first comment (disable SELinux).

I already edited

the file

# This file controls the state of SELinux on the system.
# SELINUX= can take one of these three values:
#       enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced.
#       permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing.
#       disabled - SELinux is fully disabled.
SELINUX=disabled
# SELINUXTYPE= type of policy in use. Possible values are:
#       targeted - Only targeted network daemons are protected.
#       strict - Full SELinux protection.
SELINUXTYPE=targeted
SELINUX=permissive
