If you look at the photo, you can see two shadows.
One is caused by lighting, and one is shadow caused by environmental lighting HDRI.
I want to remove the shadow of the environmental lighting HDRI without splitting the layer.
What are to trying to achieve with the HDRI? You just want it as a background or just in the reflections? Or you want it to light the scene as well?
You could use the Light Path node to achieve any or all of these.
I want to use it as background and reflection and brightness, I only want to get rid of the shadow.
Try the following setup.
This will basically make the HDRI influence everything but the shadows.
