How to fix the error when you run the script with cron?

Additional information
File upload.ts contains
Consider a few situations:
1. When you run the script while in the directory root/ team ts-node /root/autoinst/instAPI/bot/upload.ts

The script starts but fails with error Cannot find name 'process'. Do you need to install type definitions for node? Try `npm i @types/node`.


2. When you run the script while in the directory root/autoinst/instAPI team ts-node /root/autoinst/instAPI/bot/upload.ts
The script runs and returns

Everything Is OK

3. Run the script from directory root/ but the team
ts-node --dir /root/autoinst/instAPI/bot/ /root/autoinst/instAPI/bot/upload.ts

The result is the same as in P2. (If you run the command ts-node-s /root/autoinst/instAPI/bot/upload.ts the result is the same). The list of options ts-node attached below.

The list of options

If you create a new cron job
*/5 7-21 * * * /root/.nvm/versions/node/v12.14.1/bin/ts-node --dir /root/autoinst/instAPI/bot/ /root/autoinst/instAPI/bot/upload.ts >> log.log

After her run in the file var/mail/root will be a letter of such content:
Subject: Cron <root@ip> /root/.nvm/versions/node/v12.14.1/bin/ts-node --dir /root/autoinst/instAPI/bot/ /root/autoinst/instAPI/bot/upload.ts >> /root/autoinst/tgBot/logs/cronTurn.log

(node:32420) ExperimentalWarning: The ESM module loader is experimental.

Ie the script does not run and returns an error TypeError [ERR_UNKNOWN_FILE_EXTENSION]: Unknown file extension ".ts"

How do I fix it?

And again. When you start with the crown, the team ts-node is not defined, so I specified the full path to the file, namely /root/.nvm/versions/node/v12.14.1/bin/ts-node
