So I'm trying to write an applescript to make it so I can restart my Minecraft server via E-Mail (you can make the mail app run an applescript for different criteria. See the attached picture). I have it stopping the server already but I cant figure out how to make it open the start_server.command file to start it again. Here's what I have so far:

on run
tell application "Terminal" to activate
delay 2
tell application "System Events" to keystroke "stop"
delay 5
tell application "System Events" to keystroke return
end run

So after keystroking return I need it to open finder and open a certain file. How would I go about doing that? Sorry if this post was hard to understand!

tell application "Finder" to open POSIX file "/Applications/Safari.app"
