Are there fjords in Oslo?

Is the Oslo fjord a fjord?
The Oslofjord is not a fjord in the geological sense of the world. The word fjord is used in Norwegian to describe a wider range of waterways than how it’s typically used in English. The fjord—an inlet of the Skagerrak sea—is vast, stretching south from the city of Oslo to the Torbjørnskjær and Færder lighthouses.
