Redhat Linux 4.8 error -mount: mount point /oracle does not exist for new /etc/fstab entries

I have created 2 volume groups,/dev/lvm01 , /dev/lvm02 and have created new partitions on bothe volumes.

I entered the new partition data in /etc/fstab and tried to run mount -a .

Errors returned for all the newly created partitions = "mount: mount point /oracle does not exist"

How do I manually create mountpoints so that /etc/fstab will mount these partitions . The files attached below are the PV_LV display, and the fstab , results of mount -a .

are you sure there is any oracle directory inside root?
#mkdir /oracle
It is quite hard to understand through that text would be better if you take a snapshot or post the output here
#cat /etc/fstab
