The idea of creating Nightwish was born in July 1996 at midnight when Tuomas was spending the night with friends around the campfire. The first three songs were acoustic and were recorded between October and December 1996. While the group were three people: Tuomas, Tarja and Emppu.

After that, we wanted to try, as the music will sound if you add drums (Jukka, joined the group) and use an electric guitar instead of acoustic. After several weeks of rehearsals, we went into the studio in April 1997. At that time we recorded seven songs, which were issued on the album "Angels Fall First" Limited edition.

In May 1997 a contract was signed with the> "Spinefarm Records" on two albums. In August, Nightwish into the studio and recorded four new songs. Before the release of "Angels Fall First", was released the single "The Carpenter" which took 8 position in the official singles chart in Finland. "Angels Fall First" was released in early November and took 31 seats in the official album chart in Finland.

The first concert that gave Nightwish held December 31, 1997 at Kitee. After that, the only 7 concerts next winter because Jukka and Emppu were in the army and Tarja was busy studying. Nightwish and "Spinefarm Records" signed a new contract, the recording of three albums instead of two.

In April 1998, started shooting the first video clip for the song "The Carpenter". He was ready in early May and was executed in Jyrki. Tuomas and Tarja also gave an interview on the show (this happened in late May). Next summer Sami Vanska, who plays bass, joined. During the summer songs for the new album was ready, and the band went into the studio in early August. Recording was completed in late October. 13th November Nightwish gave a concert in Kitee, and at this concert was filmed video for the song "Sacrament Of Wilderness". The self-titled single was released on 26th November, and then ,7-th of December, they released the album "Oceanborn".

They were all surprised by success "Oceanborn". He rose to fifth place in the Finnish official album chart, and the single "Sacrament of Wilderness" was number one in the singles chart for a week. In winter 1999 Nightwish gave many concerts, toured the country for three months. Spring "Oceanborn" was released outside of Finland.

At the same time, it was confirmed that Nightwish made a tour of Europe, together with the German band Rage.
