How to delete an offline node proxmox vm??

I am reaching out to evyone just to seek your assistance regarding an issue I encountered with Proxmox Community Edition, which I am currently using for my homelab. I must say that Proxmox is an exceptional tool that covers all my needs.

Here's the situation: I have a two-node cluster, but I no longer require one of the nodes. Consequently, I physically turned off the node and removed it from the network. However, I am unsure how to remove this node from the Proxmox GUI itself. I have attempted using the "pvecm nodes" command, but it only displays information about the node that is currently powered on.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could provide me with guidance on how to remove the offline node from the Proxmox GUI. Is there a specific command or procedure that I should follow? I want to ensure that the cluster is accurately reflected in the GUI and that all resources are properly managed.
