A new redo log member is added to the database. However, if a shutdown and a subsequent startup is issued BEFORE the status of the log member as per V$LOGFILE goes from 'INVALID' (which is expected) to blank entry (i.e. 'IN USE'), you get an ORA-00313 in the alert log and a trace file is generated.
The alert log contains information like below:
Errors in file /u01/app/oracle/diag/rdbms/v1120/v1120/trace/v1120_lgwr_29937.trc:
ORA-00313: open failed for members of log group 1 of thread 1
