I accidently corrupted my veracrypt container and need help recovering it

Operating System: Arch linux x86_64
Veracrypt version: 1.18
Container type: hidden veracrypt volume

here is what i did to cause this:

i have a script that removes everything from /tmp folder
find /tmp/ -type f -exec shred -fvzu -n 3 {} \;
today i accidently ran this script when veracrypt was mounted and saw a folder name .veracrypt_aux_mnt1 getting removed after this the normal partion (which was mounted when i ran the script, hidden volume is working fine) is no longer working im getting the following error:


in windows it gets mounted but asking to format it and if i press cancel it gives an error saying the "the volume does not contain a recognized file system"


is there anyone to recover it? i have my bitcoin private keys inside it :(

p.s: sorry for my english
