I have ask this question before but was confused by the answer.

My broker allows me to Buy puts to close, but not write to open puts.
I can also Sell puts to close but not buy to open. So how do I own a put so can I buy to close if I can't write to open? I guess my question is why everything says to close and nothing says to open.
