ospf and multiple static routes

what wins? static route or static route learned ospf E2 (both has same metric)

my understanding is that static route that I put in by hand wins and if that fails it goes to the E2 learned OSPF correct?

There is also a form of static route known as a floating static router on which you configure the admin distance that the static route should have.

By default static routes have an admin distance of 1 so they are preferred over all other routes other than connected wihich have an admin distance of 0 and ALWAYS win.

Floating static routes are useful in a number of scenarios including backup
