              The issue is caused by incorrect permission of $GRID_HOME/bin/oracle and $ORACLE_HOME/bin/oracle, which lead to connection failure to ASM instance:

              ls -al $GRID_HOME/bin/oracle
              -rwxr-x--x 1 grid oinstall 200678464 Feb 28 14:54 oracle

              ls -al $ORACLE_HOME/bin/oracle
              -rwxr-x--x 1 oracle asmadmin 228886191 Feb 28 15:41 oracle

              Change as belo

              cd $GRID_HOME/bin
              chmod 6751 oracle

              cd $ORACLE_HOME/bin
              chmod 6751 oracle

              After the change, permission should show:

              ls -l $GRID_HOME/bin/oracle
              -rwsr-s--x 1 grid oinstall 203974257 May 11 09:30 oracle

              ls -l $ORACLE_HOME/bin/oracle
              -rwsr-s--x 1 oracle oinstall 232399431 May 14 13:47 oracle

              Restart database
