How do i recreate the default "local-lvm"

so i am currently redoing/clustering a 5 node setup.
Two nodes should have a local and local-zfs partition (4 ssds in raidz), one a local and local-lvm (one ssd ext4) and two a local a local-lvm and a local lvm-2 (2 ssds raid 1 and 6 hdds raid5)
I created the cluster on one of the nodes with local and local-zfs and joined all the others. The second zfs node and the raid5 hdd volumes work fine but the local-lvm volumes got overwritten by the cluster join. The problem is when i want to readd them i get the message "no disks unused" (of course bc local-lvm would be, like on the default config on the disk on which proxmox is installed and local is also stored).

How can i readd them?
thx :)
