SSD now showing in terminal or disk utility

So I am trying to erase and reset my SSD as I was playin round with installing Linux and windows, however when I type in diskutil list into into terminal it doesn’t show my SSD and it also doesn’t show my my SSD in disk utility. All this am I doing in Recovery mode as my mac system got deleted for a very strange reason - any help would be greatly appreciated, it would be really good to have macOS on my computer. Thanks

Is the SSD OK? Can you test it in another computer because I suspect drive failure if it is not showing in disk utility. In recovery environment you should be able to select Install Mac OS and choose the SSD to install to - it would then prompt / warn you that the disk needed formatting to accept Mac OS. Double check power and data connections and try once more.
