You can connect your Apple TV to the wifi by using your iPhone as the remote. You can download the remote app from the App Store or you can access the remote that came with your iPhone in your control centre. (If the remote is not in control centre, you can add it in Settings> Control Centre and adding 'Apple TV Remote there')

You’ll need a physical remote if both devices aren’t already connected to the same network. The software remote on iPhone would work over the (Wi-Fi) home network, so that wouldn’t be useable until they’re both connected.

My TV remote seems happy to control HDMI connected devices as well, including Apple TV. Not sure how prevalent that is. Give it a try.
