The doc is recommend you do pvremove first and then run vgreduce. 
But you will get error something like "...you need to remove from volume group first before delete the physical volume" (the message makes sense for me. Need to removing from volume group first then removing the physical one)

While ago I run "vgrreduce" first and then do "pvremove". It worked fine for me.
