New to this forum and Ergo - Trying to understand how to mint NFTs utilizing Ergo

Ill start by saying this will likely be a noob question but I really struggling to get a footing with all of this.

I am looking over the Ergo platform API: Redoc

I have figured out how to get basic transaction info as such: https://api.ergoplatform.com/api/v1/transactions/<transaction#>

What I am struggling with is understanding how minting an NFT can be achieved by utilizing the API?

I know its a very general and broad question, but can anyone point me in the right direction or provide any insight, it would be much appreciated!
