MongoDB Create Database

SYNTAX:

Basic syntax of use DATABASE statement is as follows:

use DATABASE_NAME

EXAMPLE:

If you want to create a database with name <mydb>, then use DATABASE statement would be as follows:

>use mydb
switched to db mydb

To check your currently selected database use the command db

>db
mydb

If you want to check your databases list, then use the command show dbs.

>show dbs
local     0.78125GB
test      0.23012GB

Your created database (mydb) is not present in list. To display database you need to insert atleast one document into it.

>db.movie.insert({"name":"tutorials point"})
>show dbs
local      0.78125GB
mydb       0.23012GB
test       0.23012GB

In mongodb default database is test. If you didn’t create any database then collections will be stored in test database.
