Could you confirm me that it's the best process to reindex an OpenLDAP?

Correct, you cannot generate indices if you remove your database. Specifically they get generated from the dn2id.bdb & id2entry.bdb files. It is sufficient only to remove the specific index you want regenerated, rather than all of them, and then to run slapindex with the appropriate command line arguments to just regenerate the index for that specific attribute.
