You can try using the length of wire trick, see if you can open it.

You get a length of strimmer wire or similar.
Feed it into the gap around the door.
Work it round so both ends are opposite the handle.

Pull sideways away from the handle on both ends and pull the door open with your other hand.

Try it, see how it goes and get back to me.
