I installed fedora few hours ago. I was a windows 10 user. I deleted the windows partitions and installed fedora. Now one of the partition that is shown as "Partition3" "247GB LVM2 PV" in the disk manager, is not accessable to me because it may be not mounted or any other issue that i don't know.

Pleesss help me...

Your system is using LVM (Logical Volume Manager). Partition3 contains a Physical Volume (PV) from which one or more Logical Volumes are created. A Physical Volume cannot be directly accessed/mounted so no issues here. Just confirm all PV storage is actually allocated running sudo pvdisplay in a terminal
