when I run the paraFoam script to visualize the results of a simulation with paraview, I keep getting an error with paraview because the file .foam is empty and paraview can't open the result. I can't find any discussion related to this point. Does anybody already faced this problem?
Thanks for the help!

The .foam is meant to be empty. It is only so paraview chooses the correct reader (PVFoamReader).
Something else has gone wrong. Check all your outputs and that you are running the OpenFOAM paraview version.
