you just wiped your disk

It didn't take very long and didn't give any warnings, so I thought it
just wrote the volume name to somewhere on the disk.

unfortunately it also wipes out informations about logical volumes into
the vg. data is not damaged, only you don't know where it is.
and since the VG backups were on one of the inaccessible logical volume
you cannot use those for recovery.

I have downloaded testdisk and this is what I get:

try with each of the linux partitions found and see if you can mount it
and get your data back.
