I've seen something like this where the OS mounts READ ONLY shutdown the database ( its probably down ) and hard boot and check the OS before attempting to start the standby.
Any chance the compatible parameter is different between the primary and standby?
Given the combination of errors I would probably get oracle support involved early.
I have the same issue when using sqlplus, probably a bug. But it works fine when using rman:
SQL> SHUTDOWN IMMEDIATE;
ORACLE instance shut down.
SQL> STARTUP MOUNT;
ORACLE instance started.
