I have an ipv6 network 2001:db8:85a3:: /80
I want to setup a DHCPv6 scope.

Starting range 2001:db8:85a3::2 /80 ending range 2001:db8:85a3::9999 /80
This scope above can basically give out 9998 ipv6 address.
Please confirm if  this is correct.

Also say I want to add 100 more ipv6 address to my above scope how will it look.
Starting range 2001:db8:85a3::2 /80  ending range please advice

That depends. If you're talking hex, then yes.  
However, if your talking decimal, then it's 39,319 addresses.

I'm going to assume you want to add 100 (decimal) hosts to your range.
So it would be 2001:db8:85a3::2 /80 ending range 2001:db8:85a3::99FD /80

2001:db8:85a3::2 /80 - 2001:db8:85a3::3EA /80

1000d = 3E8h

The windows calculator has a "programmer" view that lets you switch between decimal and hex.
