Node.js Question

nodejs/mongodb, remove entire collection

I'm trying to remove all items in a collection.

db.collection('sessions', function(err, collection) {
collection.remove();
});


This is the error I get:

node.js:134
throw e; // process.nextTick error, or 'error' event on first tick
^
TypeError: Cannot call method 'getRequestId' of null

at Module.load (module.js:343:31)
at Function._load (module.js:302:12)


However, I can do this via mongodb fine:

db.sessions.remove();


What's the best way to achieve what I want via node?

Thanks

Going back to this... just to update the question.

store.collection('sessions',function(err, collection){
    collection.remove({},function(err, removed){
    });
});
