Hallo & ne schöne guter tag.
This forum is RAIL so I assume you mean trains. There are direct buses-FLIXbus, check that if you want or are too nervous/unfamiliair with trains here in EUR.
This will invariably first lead you to Hamburg, hansestadt. It seems its all new to you, but on bahn.de you can simply put in start+finish and it will show connections for that day (not TOO far advance, a very common mistake for many intercontinentals). The most common route will put you in the (renewed last week to bigger trains) to Kopenhagen, change, hourly swedish Oresundt train to Göteborg and then only a few trains/day to Oslo by VY (norsk statsbaner). Planner may also show hourly BUSes Göteborg-Oslo, these are a little faster, but will not accept passes.
With luck and a very early start you can do it in 1 day from Hamburg
It should be blinding obvious that all the national state railways in EUR have their own website with lots of details, dr google will spit that out. The site seat61 is a very good source for how to do it for newbies, but it always starts from GB=UK.

Hi.

Germany-Copenhagen:
First you travel from Germany to Copenhagen. Tickets on Deutsche Bahn website: https://bahn.com
The journey time depends on the city of departure.

Copenhagen-Göteborg:
There you travel with the Öresundstag via the big Öresund bridge. Tickets available on their website: https://www.oresundstag.se/en
Destination is "Göteborg C" (main station) Journey time 4 hours, tickets for about 40 EUR.

Göteborg-Oslo:
By direct train the ticket price is about 40 EUR and the journey time 3:30 hours. Book your ticket on: https://www.vy.no/en
Arrival station is "Oslo S".


Other options:
The overnight ferry from Emden (go by Deutsche Bahn to "Emden Hafen"). Then book the ferry: https://hollandnorwaylines.com
In Norway continue from Kristiansand (Norway) to Oslo either by train (Go Ahead Norge - not recommended) or by bus of Norwegian railways VY. Tickets on https://vy.no

OR by train from Germany via Hamburg to "Hirtshals st" (Denmark) and ferry to Kristiansand and on as above.

There are also two night trains from Berlin/Hamburg to Stockholm, from where you can continue by another night train up to Narvik (Norway). All depends what your departure and final destination is. :)

Please read as well this blog here of Alexander: https://rail.cc/blog/copenhagen-gothenburg-oslo

Also you can take the Colorline-Ferry from Kiel to Oslo . Kiel is a bit better to reach as Emden (by train) . The harbor of Kiel is directly 30 meters away from the main station . Direct after you leave the station you can see the ship . Tickets starts from 274€ and the ferry departs every day 14:00 (2pm) , tickets can be book at colorline.de . So the Emden - Kristianssand Ferry is much cheaper (from 85€ ) (+ train : VY from 30 € ) . (A small note : i think Emden Außenhafen is better to reach the ferry than the main station .)

Two weeks ago, I caught the train to Emden Außenhafen, then walked 100yards to the Emden - Kristiansund for the overnight journey.
In Kristiansund, it is 2 minutes to the bus station and 4 to the railway station.
I caught the train to Stavanger.
Also consider the Copenhagen to Oslo ferry, which I have also traveled on, you will enjoy the four hour cruise up Oslofjord.
