Silver atom has completely filled d orbitals (4d10) in its ground state. How can you say that it is a transition element?

Silver Ag(Z = 47) has outer electronic configuration 5s14d10  in its ground state showing that it is not transition metal in first instance but in +2 oxidation state its electronic configuration is 5s04d9, proving that it is transition metal with incompletely filled d orbital.
