If the job is trying to reference the file that would seem to indicate that
some object referenced by the job may be assigned to the file.
Query dba_extents for allocations made to the file in question.

Get the archive logs needed to recover, and recover the file.
Rename the file to go with the TBS it is in.
Shrink the file down to as small as possible.
Just leave the file there.
