virtual machine deleted and access to its volume groups is lost

by accident, I have deleted a vm that had a samba service, this server had 2 disks assigned to be configured as a logical volume group and then mounted in a folder that would be shared on the network through the samba service, I still have the disks with all the information, but I don't know how to access all the data to be able to get it out of there, I've already tried to mount the volume group from a live linux and I can't access them, I really didn't want to touch the two disks anymore until not sure how to get all the information they have, please what do you suggest me to do?

I share an image with the two disks that were assigned to the vm only to share data on the network, the disks are disk-5 and disk-2, which is how they have been added as datastore in the proxmox, just these two disks were being part internally in the samba vm as logical volume
