Just another suggestion, if your JIRA isn't large enough you can try generating an XML backup from JIRA (which was connected to Oracle DB) and then restore the XML backup file on to another JIRA (with the same version) and could be connected to PostgreSQL DB. If this is successful, you can restore attachments & install add-ons. 

Please see this Atlassian article for more info:-
