Trying to remove current array and create a new one using mdadm

I'm trying to create a new array, but I need to remove my other array. In my mdadm.conf file I have to entries for md0 a raid1 array and a raid0 array.

I've tried removing the devices with a command like:
mdadm --misc -R /dev/md0 /dev/hde1 /dev/hdf /dev/hdg

But it says it's not a part of the array. And I can't create a new one because it says the disks are already a part of another array. Can I just delete the two lines in the mdadm.conf?
