Minting NFT -> Dropped & Replaced ...ETH are gone

Hey guys!

Yesterday I tried to mint a NFT. The gas fee was estimated by Metamask and I didnt modify it… I paid about 34$ gas fee

The minting process was pending for the whole day. Today I got the message from MetaMask where it says: Dropped & Replaced.

I checked the replaced TX Hash and it forwards me to a transaction I made last evening (Many hours after I did the mint.)

The problem is that the money is gone… it was not dropped into this transaction.

When I compare the time stamps they also confirm my lost. Because the message dropped&replaced was from this morning…but the new TX hash is from last evening…

What can I do? Why did it happen to me?

Kind regards
