Newly created Exchange Mailbox Database does not show up with Get-MailboxStatistics - Database

I have created a new mailbox database on a different hard disk in an Exchange 2010 environment.  I was able to move two mailboxes to it, inside the Exchange Management console the database shows as mounted and looking at the users list they are both listed in the new mailbox.  Both users are still able to send and receive email fine.  

The problem is that when I run Get-MailboxStatistics - Database "New Database" I get Mailbox database "New Mailbox" doesn't exist as the results.   Is there a problem with the new database and how can I figure out why it is not registering?

Try this way:
Get-Mailbox -Database "YOUR DB NAME" | Get-MailboxStatistics | ft displayname,totaldeleteditemsize,totalitemsize

Usually a mailbox does not actually exist until the first item has been received. Try sending a test message to the mailbox and then check.

Ignore that last comment... it didn't fully read the message. Sorry!

That works - is there any reason in particular why that works and not the abbreviated?
