May I refer to Wikipedia?


"A database is a structured collection of records or data."

It may be implemented as a single file on disk, it may be implemented as
multiple files on multiple disks, it may be implemented as a cluster of
computers, it may be implemented as a part of the system memory, it may
be implemented as a lot of text on dead tree paper.

If you think that "databases are files" then there really is absolutely
no point in continuing this discussion since you probably don't even
understand the concept of a concept.
