No, I doubt that command would work, like I said, the standby "ha record" of the temp datafile, but the OS file does not exist:

SQL> select name, bytes from v$tempfile;


------------------------ ----------
/usr/database/db01/orada	  0


I suppose this makes sense since rman does not back these up and the standby was build from that backup:

SQL> host ls -l /usr/database/db01/oradata/db/temp01.dbf ls: /usr/database/db01/oradata/db/temp01.dbf: No such file or directory

It seems like data guard should/could make these files during the role change.
