I created a shared library in onedrive (website), added people to it, but then it disappeared. I can't find it anywhere but if I try to set up the shared library again with the same name it says I can't because it already exists.
I've tried refreshing, logging out and in again, checking in the teams program.

Hi @Turkmick good afternoon.
It looks like you set up any invalidad character or file name, or path legths. To see hidden folder - files in OneDrive, You have to go to the library in Classic view with Internet Explorer and use File explorer. There, you should be able to view that folder and the content.
Other option is try to sync locally your Onedrive and manipulate the folders from there
Here you have more info about OneDrive limitations.
I hope this can help you!

@Turkmick Shared libraries are actually SharePoint sites, so would appear at https://<tenancyname>.sharepoint.com/sites/sitename and it shows you the URL when creating the library. It won't have updated the "Shared libraries" list within OneDrive as the list at the side of OneDrive is just "frequently accessed libraries" so it won't appear in there yet.
Edit: If you put OneDrive into classic mode you might be able to see it, click "Return to classic OneDrive" and then look under "Groups" - here my shared library is called "Test test":
If it doesn't appear in there, and you can't work out what the URL should be then somebody with admin access to SharePoint will need to look in the SharePoint admin centre for it:
