It all depends on the kind of work you are upto. If you are into dba on Linux, yes knowing linux is must. But just because you have oracle certification you do not need Linux certification.

Knowing Linux is a must if you manage database servers running Linux. But you definitely can survive without certifications. OCP is more than sufficient for career prospects. I manage Linux and windows servers and do have certifications for both. I do have RHCT but I do not call it certification.
