The VMFS partition needs to be recreated manually from the command line. Take a look at my reply at https://communities.vmware.com/t5/ESXi-Discussions/Error-creating-a-new-datastore/td-p/2306061. Please remember that this reply is specific for the user's case, and you need to adjust the device name, as well as the start, and end sector.
In doubt, run the commands that the I asked the user in the mentioned thread to run, and post the commands' output.

You definetely do NOT want to create a dos partitiontable - you need GPT for the *TB-size" VMFS

I also do not want to create a DOS partition
In fact, at the time of creation, because the OS partitions are also on the same disk to me , return this error :
