How can I activate my NVIDIA Geforce GTX 960M for Minecraft? When I type in

lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation HD Graphics 530 (rev 06)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GM107M [GeForce GTX 960M] (rev a2)

I want to play minecraft with my GTX card. I tried "env DRI_PRIME=1 minecraft-launcher". It started normally but when you press F3 ingame then it shows you the used graphic processor and it shows the intel one. But how can I activate it now? Greets
