This article represents the discography of progressive bluegrass band Nickel Creek. They have released five studio albums, one compilation album, as well as seven singles.

Nickel Creek's first widely known album, Nickel Creek, was released in 2001. It charted within the Top 20 of the Billboard Top Country Albums charts. The album featured three singles: "When You Come Back Down", "The Lighthouse's Tale", and "Reason's Why". The first two charted to #48 and #49 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, whereas the third single failed to chart. Also in 2001, the band were featured with Dolly Parton on "Shine", a cover of the pop group Collective Soul's signature song. The song was released as a single from Parton's album Little Sparrow, and also featured a music video. Nickel Creek was then certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America on February 4, 2004.

In 2003, they released their critically acclaimed album This Side. It was success on the Top Country Albums chart, debuting and peaking at #2, as well as their first album to chart within the Top 20 of the Billboard 200, where it reached #18. It was also a number-one album on the Billboard Top Bluegrass Albums chart. The album only spawned one chart single with its "title track". It peaked at #56 on the country charts.

Their final studio album, Why Should the Fire Die?, was released in 2005. Like its preceder, it too, made the Top 20 of the Billboard 200, but failed to enter the Top Country Albums chart. One single was released, "When in Rome", however, it failed to chart.
