How to assign a mimetype to document being created using REST API? (Alfresco 5.2)

I am wondering if there is anyway we can set/assign the content-mime type of a document being created using REST API.


I use the below this rest api  and I need to be able to set mimetype directly when the document is being created. 


Is that possible?


I did a few try and errors it seems that mimetype is determined based on the extension given to the name property passed to the api.


So if I for example use the below as the json post parameter, the mimetype becomes application/pdf but 


"name": "filename.pdf",
"nodeType": "string",



if use the below, the mimetype becomes applicaiton/image. 


"name": "filename.png",
"nodeType": "string",




Please advise if that can be set using REST API.


Thank you,
