This paper is concerned with the following Schrödinger-Poisson system
 $\begin{equation*} (P_\mu): -\Delta u +u + K(x)\phi u = |u|^{p-1}u + \mu h(x)u, \ -\Delta \phi = K(x) u^2, \ x\in\mathbb{R}^3, \end{equation*}$
where
 $p\in (3,5)$
,
 $K(x)$
and
 $h(x)$
are nonnegative functions, and
 $\mu$
is a positive parameter. Let
 $\mu_1 > 0$
be an isolated first eigenvalue of the eigenvalue problem
 $-\Delta u + u = \mu h(x)u$
,
 $u\in H^1(\mathbb{R}^3)$
. As
 $0<\mu\leq\mu_1$
, we prove that
 $(P_{\mu})$
has at least one nonnegative bound state with positive energy. As
 $\mu > \mu_1$
, there is
 $\delta > 0$
such that for any
 $\mu\in (\mu_1, \mu_1 + \delta)$
,
 $(P_\mu)$
has a nonnegative ground state
 $u_{0,\mu}$
with negative energy, and
 $u_{0,\mu^{(n)}}\to 0$
in
 $H^1(\mathbb{R}^3)$
as
 $\mu^{(n)}\downarrow \mu_1$
. Besides,
 $(P_\mu)$
has another nonnegative bound state
 $u_{2,\mu}$
with positive energy, and
 $u_{2,\mu^{(n)}}\to u_{\mu_1}$
in
 $H^1(\mathbb{R}^3)$
as
 $\mu^{(n)}\downarrow \mu_1$
, where
 $u_{\mu_1}$
is a bound state of
 $(P_{\mu_1})$
.
