A new Scrum Team has been assembled for a new product. During their first Sprint Planning meeting, the Product Owner explains the features she would like implemented during the first Sprint, prioritizes them in the Product Backlog, and creates the Definition of Done.

The Scrum Team didn't perform a Sprint 0.
The Product Backlog shouldn't be prioritized by the Product Owner.
