thank you for your response.
Here is my output:
$ sudo lvs -o segtype cryptdata_raid5/home
And if I execute:
"$ sudo lvconvert --type raid5 -i 3 cryptdata_raid5/home"
Using default stripesize 64,00 KiB.
Replaced LV type raid5 (same as raid5_ls) with possible type raid1.
Repeat this command to convert to raid5 after an interim conversion
Are you sure you want to convert linear LV cryptdata_raid5/home to
raid1 type? [y/n]: y
Insufficient free space: 1 extents needed, but only 0 available
So probably I hit a bug with lvm2-2.03.12 on arch linux.
Thanks for your help.
Then it will be better to reformat my RAID5 with mdadm.
