Be aware that the "create database..." command in Oracle may not mean exactly the same thing as it does in some other SQL-based systems.  For example, in SQL Server the concept of a "database" is a much more-limited object than in Oracle.  I don't know MySQL, so I don't know if the concept of a "database" in MySQL is more like the Oracle concept, or the SQL Server concept.  In Oracle the term "schema" is more like what is called a "database" in SQL Server.

Also, this concept: "grant all on xyz.* to [some other user]" is usually implemented in Oracle via roles.  Oracle allow you to grant permissions to a role, then the role can be granted to another user.  But, in Oracle, all of these grants are only in the local database.

This syntax in Oracle: "@...host" indicates a remote database, and permissions in Oracle are never granted to a remote database.  In Oracle systems, a remote database user must connect to the local database with a username and password that is valid in the local database.  (I don't know exactly what this syntax means in MySQL: "...@localhost".)

You can create a database from the command line but using the Database Configuration Assistant (DBCA) is a lot easier.
