select the polygon object and delete history and then you should be able to delete the nurbs object.

If you select an object or component and a different object or component turns purple, that means that they're connected somehow (For example, revolving a curve and then selecting that curve will turn the surface purple, and you can move the curve to affect the surface) and unless you delete the node of their connection, deleting one will often delete the other or cause other problems.
