You need to was down the transmission and locate the leak, the transmission will not drive if the oil level drops to low, and you can do damage driving with low oil level, wash down and re fill, take for a short drive and inspect for fresh leaks, let me know where the leak is or try and send a pic of the oil leak on the transmission.

If you have no drive you first need to check the line pressure, you need a hydraulic pressure gauge test equipment, all functions are internal, and there is no way of checking with out dismantling the transmission, we need to know if you have line pressure as if not, you may have a failed pump or governor.
