My internal ssd is not displayed in disk utility

I deleted "other volumes" with "view all" options, and now my internal ssd is not displayed

Hi! I recently wanted to format my old MacBook air, and reinstall OS sierra. During recovery mode, in disk utility, I saw that after formatting Macintosh HD, there were like 40gb in use, by "other volumes". I thought that they were other users profile (I had 3 users active in the macbook) so I wanted to delete those as well. Using "view all" options, I just formatted the other volumes container. The thing is that after this, internal ssd is no longer displayed in disk utility. The "view all" option is no longer available. "Diskutil list" command in terminal doesn't show the ssd neither. I did a SMC and NVRAM reset and nothing changed. The ssd is ok, is not a hardware wise problem. Any thoughts? I'll leave a pic of the only thing i see when I open disk utility

@danj I added 3 extra images, clicking the items on the list, also added what diskutil list brings up when I run it on a terminal console

@nemesys660 - Click on the Partition Tab as you won't see anything under First-Aid section.

@nemesys660 - OK so you have a partition just nothing on it! Time to run the OS installer.

For some reason your disk boot records are messed up. Lets create a bootable OS installer. Get a 32GB thumb drive which you’ll need to format with with GUID and a journaled file system. Down load from here How to get old versions of macOS follow this guide to set it up How to create a bootable macOS Sierra installer drive.

Once built from your other system reboot your MacBook Air using it and this time delete and reformat your internal drive so its fully clean. Now running the installer you should be able to install the OS onto your internal drive. It will automatically setup the partition and install the OS just follow the prompts.
