I recently got a 90 gallon tank with an small oscar and a small pleco-

I want to get a 4" wolf fish for the tank, I am reading that they are pretty aggressive- will be be ok in a community if they all grow up together?

A dovii? (aka wolf cichlid)

They get huge, and aggressive. A 90 gallon tank is WAY too small to house those 2 fish alone. The Dovii would have it's way with the Oscar when it get older and territorial.

A 90 gal tank is prob at it's limit with an Oscar and pleco. Both fish get large and create massive amounts of waste. If you threw a wolf cichlid in, you'd prob need a 200+ gallon tank and lots of cover to have a chance.
