Cooked veggies vs. Raw

Was looking at this site where you can put in most foods and find it's nutritional label, and found that cooked sweet potato has more nutrients than raw.

Anyone can confirm this? I checked some other veggies, and it says that cooked spinach has more nutrients than raw as well, while beets are the opposite.

Is this site bunk?

I don't know about sweet potatoes. But I was told that spinach has oxalic acid that can keep your body from absorbing nutrients. This doesn't mean that you can't eat raw spinach though. All things in moderation.
