Anette Olzon Reveals That Nightwish Fired Her

(Prog) Former Nightwish vocalist Anette Olzon has admitted to Prog that she was fired from the band in 2012. It's the first time she's spoken about the form of her departure from the Finnish band and she thinks it happened because she'd become pregnant with her third child.

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.
