    White to move

    Is it possible for white to mate black with his bishop or king? Or is it now a draw?

    black could even sacrifice his bishop against the pawn c6. Provided that his king will reach the corner h8 in time, this is still a draw (h8 is the wrong corner for the white bishop + pawn to coronate).

    but black can easily hold the blockade of the pawn c6. he does not need to show such subtltees.

    White has advantage of one pawn, and has his work for a win.

    can white force black bishop to allow white pawn to advance ?

    EVEN IF HE COULD (he can't), he would just sacrifice his bishop against Pawn c6. Then, I already pointed out that he still can't win because the square h8 is the wrong corner for the white bishop.

    bob with opposite coloured bishops it is impossible for white to make progress since he cannot ever control the coloured squares his bishop is not. so he can't force black's king to move from say c7 ever so his c pawn can never advance and he can never force the bishop to stop defending the black pawn
