Hi,
can you provide the configuration for that VM as well as for the storage: `qm config <vmid>` and for storage /etc/pve/storage.cfg

Okay, so it seems that this file is indeed your VMs qcow file, did you try to delete or move the disk while the VM was running?

Quickly check by which processes the file is opened using `fuser filename` and `ps pids`
