Default [Q] Nexus 5 will not format internal storage

I recently removed multirom on my nexus 5 and now when I try to erase all the partitions on the device it will not format:
  • Dalvik cache
  • Data
  • Internal Storage
How can I erase the entire device and fix this?

Use a computer and Nexus toolkit such as wugfresh and flash back to stock then root again and install custom recovery and your good to go!!!

Yeah reflash stock using fastboot. DO NOT use toolkits. Do it properly. Dont use shortcuts
