See this thread on how to remove google account lock on the S9:

One thing to note about combination firmware naming as shown in this example:

COMBINATION_OXM_FA80_G960FXXU1ARD1_OXMFAC_CL132338 14_QB17647924_REV01_user_mid_noship Halabtech.tar.rar

Always match the model number e.g G965F

Make sure the binary bit is either the same number or higher as shown in recovery mode or download mode U1 the number is the binary bit of the firmware. The recovery menu will show installed firmware build version on the phone at the top left of the screen which contains the binary bit number as well.

Keep the latest stock firmware ready on hand, if you need to know which one to download refer to recovery menu to find out which one is compatible and for your region.
