    Looks like your database is not started.

    What is the OS? Exactly what command, or sequence of commands, did you issue to generate this error? A copy and paste from the command session would be most helpful to determine what exact questions we need to ask.

    BTW, this really is just a database admin question, not an rman question. It's still just a database. The fact that it contains the rman catalog is no more relevent than if it contained the HR schema.
