How to recover level 1 RAID volume?

One disk in a two-disks level 1 array failed. I added another disk to the array and resynchronization completed successfully. While the synchronization was running, I removed the failed volume and the array filesystem vanished.

So I have two questions:

  1. What happened when I removed the failed array that caused the existing filesystem to vanish?

  2. Is it possible to recover the filesystem on the array?
