Hide files from Mkdocs auto generated TOC

I am new to Mkdocs. I wanted to know if it is possible to hide files in order not to have them in the Table of Contents at the left.

The purpose is to create a handmade Table of Contents where when you click on the chapter it will redirect you on another page.

I tried to do this. It works if I put links to another md file but the name of the file appear at the auto genarated Table of Contents at the left.

Hope it is clear
