I would like to create a collection and then add nft to it. The code I use:

 const a = (
    await metaplex
        name: "My off-chain name",
        uri: "https://arweave.net/y5e5DJsiwH0s_ayfMwYk-SnrZtVZzHLQDSTZ5dNRUHA",
        sellerFeeBasisPoints: 250,
        isCollection: true,

  const { nft } = await metaplex
      name: "My off-chain name",
      uri: "https://metadata.degods.com/g/9999.json",
      sellerFeeBasisPoints: 250,
      collection: findMetadataPda(a.mint.address),

  await metaplex.nfts().verifyCollection({
    mintAddress: nft.mint.address,
    collectionMintAddress: a.mint.address,

the problem is that the above code snippet creates 2 separate nft but I would like the first nft to be the nft collection

What you're experiencing is correct.

A collection points to parent/collection NFT that is created and referenced to.

Your entire collection should point to the collection NFT you created.

  • Oh thanks, i saw this site but idk why these tokens are not linked on explorer.solana.com (collection name do not appear on scanner) Collection: BMvGhd5ng6PCun7qY9gYRw91VetgmMponKz8EsDdKhbJ someNft: F7b2yg8KrAHFCNaFvoLjK8bUaZR4RVgzii5Xt8hy79c6

Did you manage to solve this? I think the new nft is not getting verified collection as part of the collection.

And the docs also mention that there should be boolean property named Verified set to true. I could not figure out how to make it successful.
