If the ball, air, and oil are all initially stationary then it will not suddenly start to spin.

Please be aware of the forum rules prohibiting discussion of perpetual motion machines.

Then it could start spinning. It would stop spinning when viscous drag forces stop it.

The container appears sealed at the bottom so the pressure in the oil is likely to be the same/similar to that of the air - so why would the air go past the ball?
