First, you don't capture the pawn- you will need to keep it on the board to avoid stalemating black. Second, you need to keep the black king in the corner to shorten the mate:

1.Kb6 Kb8
2.Ne7 a5
3.Ne5 a4
4.N5c6+ Ka8
5.Nd5 a3
6.Nc7#

Black can, of course, make alternate moves at move 1, 2, and 3, but it won't lengthen things.
