Highest Hopes - The Best of Nightwish is the third compilation album by the symphonic power metal quintet Nightwish. Their first, "Tales from the Elvenpath", was considered incomplete by many fans as it contains only tracks from "Oceanborn", "Over the Hills and Far Away", "Wishmaster" and "Century Child"; leaving out "Angels Fall First" and missing the later released "Once". This compilation, though, contains songs from all previously-released Nightwish albums, plus a cover of Pink Floyd's "High Hopes" (live version on the limited edition).

"Highest Hopes" was released in three different formats: standard, special edition and extended 2 CD. In addition to the normal version, a special edition was released, omitting the song "Deep Silent Complete" and replacing it with the popular cover version of The Phantom of the Opera theme, it also contains a bonus DVD disc containing three full songs filmed live at the Mera Luna Festival in Hildesheim, Germany in 2003.The extended version is a 2-CD compilation and includes a bonus DVD disc containing ten full songs filmed live at the M'era Luna Festival in Hildesheim, Germany in 2003.All versions feature a new (2005) recording of the song "Sleeping Sun" and a live version of Pink Floyd's "High Hopes" from which this compilation takes its name.

The album was certified platinum in Finland – for sales exceeding 40,000 copies – the same day it was released.
