Linux Error : No such file or directory

Hi,

I have issued the below command to remove directories under a specific path, it removes them fine. But atlast it tries to
find the same directory and fails.

Code:
Directories:
/root/app/dir
/root/app/dir/files/
/root/app/dir/backup/
/root/app/dir/archive/

Command:
find /root/app/dir -type d -print0 -exec rm -rf -v "{}" \;

Execution:

removed directory: `/root/app/dir/archive'
removed directory: `/root/app/dir/backup'
removed directory: `/root/app/dir/files'
removed directory: `/root/app/dir'
find: /root/app/dir: No such file or directory

You do not need find, the r option of rm is sufficient.
Code:
rm -rf /root/app/dir

The errors are find asking later rm's to remove stuff removed by earlier rm's.
