    You can if all the mailboxes are moved. Verify the arbitration mailboxes are moved as well:

    get-mailbox -arbitration  

    If they are in the old database, move them

    get-mailbox -arbitration | new-moverequest -targetdatabase <NewDB>  

    then remove the database with Exchange so it can check for any dependencies, dont just delete the DB

    Remove-MailboxDatabase -Identity MailboxDatabase01
