Nikah over phone

Q:

Assalamualikum. I wanted to know if my nikah on the phone was valid. The nikah first happened over the phone where the my fiancé, a male witness and I were present. The other two witnesses were not able to be there. So we completed the nikah. But later we got to know that the nikah was invalid with only one witness so the nikah was again addressed with my fiancé, two female witnesses, and me on the call. But the first witness wasn’t present. And the nikah happened without my wali but my wali and my family is going to get us married in a few months. Can I regard that as my wali’s consent. And if not is my nikah valid? Please let me know as this has caused a lot of confusion. This has made me realise what our prophet told us. Not to get nikah done secretly 🙁
Please answer asap. I will be grateful.
