Abstract: In this article, we use the pluricomplex Green function to give a sufficient condition for the existence and the completeness of the Bergman metric. As a consequence, we proved that a simply connected complete Kähler manifold possesses a complete Bergman metric provided that the Riemann sectional curvature $\le -A/\rho ^2$, which implies a conjecture of Greene and Wu. Moreover, we obtain a sharp estimate for the Bergman distance on such manifolds.
