TWRP recovery used to ask for a password to decrypt/mount my storage.
I flashed a new image to update the recovery and wiped my data too as I wanted to flash another rom,
but now when I'm opening the recovery with my password, it shows "Wrong Password"
and I can't mount storage and that's why I can't flash another rom.
Please help.

Did you do data partition format? Not only wipe, format is needed

Hello, to delete the encrypted partition if you don't know the password, you have to format it, but if you don't want to lose something of what there is, install Orangefox recovery, the same thing happened to me and this recovery mounts the partition even if it is encrypted. ...
