ORA-01610:

recovery using the BACKUP CONTROLFILE option must be done
Cause: Either an earlier database recovery session specified BACKUP CONTROLFILE, or the control file was recreated with the RESETLOGS option, or the control file being used is a backup control file. After that only BACKUP CONTROLFILE recovery is allowed and it must be followed by a log reset at the next database open.
Action: Perform recovery using the BACKUP CONTROFILE option.
