First you should check your log files to find-out why Nextcloud is not accessible anymore, because different reasons could force enabling of the Maintenance Mode, like e.g. a missing PHP module etc.

In general you can manually switch the maintenance mode by using the occ command line tool:

> ./occ maintenance:mode --help
  set maintenance mode

  maintenance:mode [options]

      --on              enable maintenance mode
      --off             disable maintenance mode
  -h, --help            Display help for the given command. When no command is given display help for the list command
  -q, --quiet           Do not output any message
  -V, --version         Display this application version
      --ansi|--no-ansi  Force (or disable --no-ansi) ANSI output
  -n, --no-interaction  Do not ask any interactive question
      --no-warnings     Skip global warnings, show command output only
  -v|vv|vvv, --verbose  Increase the verbosity of messages: 1 for normal output, 2 for more verbose output and 3 for debug
