Anette Olzon Reveals That Nightwish Fired Her
The sudden split followed the dismissal of previous frontwoman Tarja Turunen in 2006, and came midway through a US tour. An official announcement stated the move had been made "in mutual understanding".
But Olzon insists that's not the case. She tells Prog: "I have been getting frustrated with people saying I left the band – because I didn't. I was fired exactly as Tarja was fired, but maybe in a more quiet way."
She points to her pregnancy as the reason behind her dismissal. See what she had to say about that here.
