nvm is not compatible with the npm config "prefix" option

I use Mac. I installed node, and then one day I use nvm. Everything is well when I am using IntelliJ IDEA. But when I use VS Code, I will see the following tips in terminal panel. And I need to execute command `nvm use v16.14.2` to toggle to the expected node version.

nvm is not compatible with the npm config “prefix” option: currently set to “/usr/local” Run npm config delete prefix or nvm use --delete-prefix v9.2.1 to unset it.

How to fix it?

1. Delete npm prefix

npm config delete prefix
npm config set prefix $NVM_DIR/current

2. Delete node, node_modules, globally installed packages (not installed by nvm)

sudo rm -rf /usr/local/lib/node_modules

sudo rm /usr/local/bin/node

cd /usr/local/bin && ls -l | grep "../lib/node_modules/" | awk '{print $9}'| xargs rm

3. Set nvm

nvm alias default v16.14.2

nvm use v16.14.2

4. Validate

Close the current terminal panel and open a new one, then execute the follow command:

node -v

If the output is `v16.14.2`, then we succeed.
