How to stop being nervous while playing violin in an orchestra?
I play really good alone but in an orchestra, I shake and can’t play really well.

If you're not accustomed to playing in an orchestra, I suggest making an effort to play more often in group settings (join a club, audition for a quartet or group that plays events, etc.)
There is also a whole field of study around Musical Performance Anxiety (MPA) that addresses a host of other factors that contribute to stress-related performance issues. I suggest you do some research and see if you find something that meets your specific needs.

Tell everyone. Practice practice practice. It will get boring and your silly “nervousness” will go away.
