Also try v$recover_file.
Did you check to see if someone moved the file to where it should be and did not rename the file in the database?
Do you have a backup?
If in archive log mode then from a backup you can restore the file and after doing so run recovery. If the database is in noarchivelog mode then you would need to restore the entire database.
Otherwise, since you said this is new and data loss is OK then you could re-run the create script (providing it was saved) or after gathering some information use DBCA to recreate the database. If you have an export file you can use it to repopulate your objects to the time of the export.
