The forum will be down for maintenance over the weekend of August 18-20, 2017. The forum will be shut down on the evening (EDT) of Friday, August 18. Downtime is unknown but may be up to two days. The forum will be restarted as soon as maintenance is complete.

I might have misunderstood this so I need some help...

Do you always have to create a manual materialized view first and then do an alter so you get a immediate materialized view?

If not could someone please help me with the syntax for a immediate materialized view so it is directly created as a immediate materialized view without first beeing a manual view?

Thanks in advance...

You are not alone! ...clearly, that is a candidate for the list of "Characteristic Errors".

AFAIK, your understanding is correct: You cannot create an immediate MV directly, confine the docs (here for v16):

When you create a materialized view, it is a manual view and uninitialized.
