You are not referring to the TOC but the mini-TOC on the front
page. The TOC (which $TOC_DEPTH controls) is what you get
from the  \tableofcontents  command.

To suppress the mini-TOC use the command 
 \tableofchildlinks[off]  on the 1st page.

To control what goes into the mini-TOC use the  -link  option.
(Of course this controls it for *all* pages with a mini-toc,
not just the 1st page.)

Hope this helps,
