The NICA collider can operate with polarized light ions in two modes. At the Preferred Spin mode (PS mode) the periodic spin motion along the closed orbit is unique, i.e. the static magnetic lattice determines a single stable orientation of the beam polarization at any collider's place. At the Spin Transparency mode (ST mode) any spin direction repeats every particle turn along the closed orbit, i.e. the colliders magnetic lattice is transparent to the spin. ST mode allows one to use a completely new approach to carry out experiments with polarized ions at high precision level. The features of ion polarization control in the ST mode are discussed. The schemes of polarization control in the NICA collider in the ST mode are presented.
