O is used when addressing someone. Oh is an exclamation so the two are not interchangeable.

that's strange mamya...some of them are jelly babies...they must have been naughty, lol!
Although the use of 'O' is now archaic, restricted largely to poems and hymns, there is a distinct difference between 'O, My God' and 'Oh, My God!'. The former is a direct invocation to God whilst the latter is an exclamation of surprise followed by the expression, 'My God!'.
