      Description

      Description

      The web page https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/core/databases-and-collections/ says the following:

      In MongoDB, databases hold collections of documents.

      This is not correct. "collections" hold collections of documents (ie., records). databases hold collections of "collections"

      That's the difficulty of using a generic term ("collection") for a specific meaning ("set of documents"). I guess even the person writing the documentation got it confused.
