The D minor chord contains the notes D-F-A.
To build a Dm chord, take the minor triad formula (1-b3-5) and apply it to the D major scale (D, E, F#, G, A, B, C#).
Identify the first, third, and fifth scale degrees in a D major scale which are D-F#-A.
Because the chord Dm is a minor chord, lower the third scale degree a half step in accordance with the minor triad formula, which results in the notes D-F-A for the D minor chord.
