Is it possible to restore user managed hot backup using RMAN and recover database?

What is use of CATALOG command In RMAN?

Oracle doc says: []

1) catalog command Add information about a datafile copy, archived redo log, or control file copy to the repository.
2) Add metadata about a user-managed datafile copy, control file copy, archived log or backup piece to the RMAN repository.

After using "CATALOG" command to Add metadata about user managed backup in Recovery catalog and after doing "RESYNC CATALOG", I still cant see my backup listed in output of

RMAN> List backup
