i added a datafile to temp tablespace temp02.dbf
then i gave the cmd alter database datafile offline drop to drop the older one which lot of fragmentation.
and error of the kind ora3232.
then i removed it physically.

the dba_data_files still showed the temp01.dbf as available.
and queries started failing due to non-availability of temp01.

under v$datafile temp01 appeared as recover status and 0 bytes.

even under dba_free_space all records of temp01 are appearing with the original file id of 4.

recover datafile or tablespace or database are also

it's an impasse now
