can you select database_role from v$database on the standby database and see whether this was a standby database at all first?

set oracle_sid=oracle

Then the output of three commands are
alter system set dg_broker_start=FALSE;
system altered
select current_scn from v$database;
current_SCN
10883204

SQL> select database_role from v$database;

DATABASE_ROLE                                                                  
----------------                                                                
PRIMARY

if this is the database you have been thinking as standby, it is not as it is clearly saying in the output that this is the primary database.

did you have FSFO(fast start failover) in place?
if yes, do you think the switchover ever happened automatically?
please check your alert logs on both primary and standby, then you will know.
