The exact probability of observing $x$ unique elements after sampling with replacement from a set with $N$ elements

Say I sample with replacement from a set of $N$ unique elements s.t. elements are selected with uniform probability. If I sample with replacement $M$ times from this set, what is the exact ...

Probability of having 'k' elements that occur only once in a multiset filled by sampling with replacement

Let's say that I have a set of unique elements, $P$, and a multiset $M$ that I fill with $N \leq ||P||$ elements by sampling with replacement from $P$. What is the probability that the multiset $M$ ...
