Copying VM disk from broken server HDD to new Proxmox server

Hi here,

My Proxmox server is broken but NVMe hard disk is working fine. I would like to copy all existing VMs to another (Hetzner) proxmox server. I mount NVMe HDD to my local linux box and see all datasets. Is there simple way I can copy all those machines to remote server?
