In negative sentences we only use de?

I mean, if I want to express I don't have any pommes, is it "Je n'ai pas de pommes",or "des pommes"? That is to say, when there is a negative sentence, the only partitive article I need to use is de, is that right?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Using du, de la, de l', des to express some or any (partitive articles)"
