I think its 36.
for divisibility by 9 .. sum of all the digits must be divisible by 9.
first set of numbers can 0,2,3,4
3*3*2*1 = 18 ways

second set of numbers
0,1,3,5
3*3*2*1= 18 ways

total 36.

we have two patterns:
3, 4, 2, 0
5, 3, 1, 0
0 can't be on the first place.

For the first place we choose among 3 digits, for the second among three digits (now we can use zero) as well, for the third between 2 digits, for the fourth - 1.
3*3*2*1=18
18*2=36
