Probably the image file got indeed damaged by the badly ordered command
line of the first attempt (i.e. one of the files got copied over it
rather than into it), and so the image file was no longer recognized as
a valid DOS filesystem image.

Could you check with mdir whether the image is still ok (as this
previously succeeded)? If not, you might need to start over with a fresh
image (mformat, or copy of an existing image).
