I were mounting a .iso file, but when indicating where to mount it, I failed and typed enter instead of shift-4 (I am on azerty keyboard). The .iso was in ~/Downloads and I had typed "unmount -t iso9660 FILENAME.iso ../" Everything's good, I just deleted my whole parent directory...

However I noticed that the mount command last for about milliseconds : my files were not deleted (It would have been much longer...)

I would like to know if there is anything to get my directory back...

Is umount -t iso690... really the command you have used? Normally mount does the job. Anyways, it looks like you just overmounted the directory with ../ depending on where you executed the command. A simple reboot should bring back the directory again.
