If you know your password, there is every chance you can recover your phone using the Recovery Tool.

See this article from Jolla's zendesk and check the section on Recovery Tool and how it works/how to use it. At some point during the recovery, you should be asked for the password in order to continue the recovery.

https://jolla.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/202208763#11 - Bearing in mind that you may or may not be able to recover your data.

Good luck!
