I have 2 files on my NTFS partition. One of them is 666 bytes and the other is 0 bytes. When trying to delete them it says that it does not exist
I have tried the
rm command from the terminal and it does not work

What if you try to delete them from Files? What happens?
I had the same problem in the past, it was related to encoding of file names.
There is a program
ntfsfix that can fix some ntfs problems:
sudo ntfsfix /dev/sd(your partition here)
According to the man pages:
ntfsfix is a utility that fixes some common NTFS problems. ntfsfix is NOT a Linux version of chkdsk. It only repairs some fundamental NTFS inconsistencies, resets the NTFS journal file and schedules an NTFS consistency check for the first boot into Windows.
You may run
ntfsfix on an NTFS volume if you think it was damaged by Windows or some other way and it cannot be mounted.

Have you tried [Be careful with sudo and rm... great power great responsibility]:
sudo su rm "[full path of the file]"
