Currently I have :
250gb ssd ( cdrive/os)
1tb hdd( games/other softwares)
500gb nvme ssd( new/empty)

What I want to do is get all the files including os from the sata ssd to the nvme ssd . And then all the data from hdd to the sata ssd.
Is it possible ? ( I don't want to reinstall complete new windows)

Yes, quite possible. For transferring OS to NVMe use Macrium Reflect free https://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/macrium_reflect_free_edition.html with which you can clone SATA SSD to NVMe.
Once that's working, you can use https://www.partitionwizard.com/download.html to clean up and delete all partitions from SATA SSD and than you can just copy contents from HDD to it. Only constraint is that you need enough space on SSD for whatever data you have on HDD without filling it up more than about 80% , SSDs don't like it when filled up to the rim.

Just a thought and a suggestion. If you have 200-250GB of free space in that HDD, instead of straight clone from SSD to NVMe, using MR, make a full backup to HDD. You will get one file with .mrimg extension with size of about 75% of all data on SSD. After you make a Rescue disk/USB from MR, you can BOOT to it and restore backup to NVMe drive. It also has utility to fix any BOOT problem and to account for difference in SATA and NVMe drives. Later on you can use MR to keep on backing up OS drive (or any other) to whatever you want.
