Born in Braga, Oliveira started his footballing career with local S.C. Braga, joining the club's youth system at the age of 10. Still in his teens he was bought by Chelsea for a reported cost of £500,000, making his Premier League debut away against Manchester City. However, he never managed to break into the main squad and, during one month, served a spell at Preston North End.
Also in 2004–05 Oliveira played once for Chelsea, as a substitute in the last game against Newcastle United. In the summer of 2005 he was loaned to C.S. Marítimo, with Nuno Morais joining in the same predicament; after the season finished, he agreed to be released from his contract and signed with the Madeira-based team.
After his second season, which included his first Portuguese top flight goal, in a 2–3 loss at neighbours C.D. Nacional, Oliveira was released and joined Leixões SC, which had just returned to the main category after several decades of absence.
In June 2008, after having helped the Matosinhos club retain its league status, Oliveira returned to Braga, now as a senior player, signing a two-year contract. He appeared very rarely throughout his debut campaign, one of his few chances being a 5–0 win at C.F. Os Belenenses.
After the January 2010 sale of starter João Pereira to Sporting Clube de Portugal he became the first-choice right back, and finished the season with 17 appearances as the Minho side achieved a best-ever second place in the league.
In July 2010 Oliveira joined Italian team Parma FC – who paid K.A.S. Eupen a fee of €1 million (5% Solidarity Contribution included) – being called up to training camp on the 12th. Two weeks later he was loaned to another club in the country, Torino FC, for €600,000, with the Serie B side having an option to buy half of his contract at the season's end; he was recalled from his spell in the following transfer window, only managing one official appearance during his first year (25 minutes in a 1–1 away draw against Cagliari Calcio, in Serie A's last round).
