In the paper, we have numerically studied how the initial conditions influence the mode-locked soliton formation in the passively mode-locked fiber laser by using the nonlinear polarization rotation technique. We find that once the laser gain is fixed, a soliton with fixed peak power and pulse width will be formed, which is independent of the initial seed pulse conditions. Further numerical simulations have shown that both the peak power and the pulse width of the mode-locked soliton are varied with the linear cavity delay bias setting. We identified that the larger the linear cavity phase setting, the higher the soliton peak and the narrower the soliton pulse achievable in certain range, and adjustable pulse width passively mode-locked fiber laser can be formed by turning the linear cavity delay bias.
