While cleaning this pen I think I accidentally removed the nib-holder unit (marked in arrow) from the section. Although the nib holder unit has a screw, it was not screwed inside to the section. But, rather pasted to the inside of the section.

When I try to insert the nib holder unit, it remains loose.

 

What can I do in this situation? Is this damage irreversible?

In your place, I would try to either glue it back in place (using something like white glue) or friction-fit it by putting some plumber's tape around it and seeing if the fit can be made tight enough. That is, if you cannot find those screw threads in the section to hold the nib collar... Good luck with your improvisation!

Use some 2 part epoxy.  The plastic weld stuff off the shelf from any hardware store will work fine.

White glue?  Like white school glue or something else?  I'd never in a million years expect white school glue to hold these parts together, but if you mean something else I'm curious to learn.

No, I do mean white glue. I use it if I'm not sure I want the connection to be permanent. If it works well, I'd do the superglue or comparable.
