DNS Zone already exists

Hi all, I’m trying to use Netlify DNS to add a custom domain but when going through the wizard, verifying I own the domain, etc., I get the error message,

“A DNS zone for this domain already exists under a different account”

I had a previous netlify account linked to this domain, but i deleted it, so i have no way of accessing it to delete or transfer che the custom domain.
Since the UI said it would take a while, i waited, but still i get the same message. Is there any way to spedd up the process? the domain is bytes.black.

Many thanks,
