is it possible to get information about a deleted instance? Especially if they were not able to launch. I want to get the fault part of the server data.

A simple call GET servers/[ID] returns 404 error after an instance was deleted.

The Nova API can only access existing instances. This includes instances in the ERROR state, but it doesn't include instances that were deleted.

You can find information about deleted instances in the log files and the measurements and events recorded by Ceilometer. I don't think, however, that Ceilometer data include fault information.
