The mongodb install has been removed from Homebrew. To install the mongodb extension you need to use pecl.

sudo pecl install mongodb

You may need to follow some additional configuration. Follow the inline instructions as they appear. Once the install is finished it will add two lines at the bottom of your php.ini file. Instead, remove these lines and add the and add a separate file to your conf.d directory in the same directory as you php.ini file.

In php.ini remove

extension="mongodb.so" // remove
extension="php_mongodb.so // remove

Then run:

$ touch /usr/local/etc/php/5.6/conf.d/ext-mongodb.ini

Finally add this line to the new file:

// example
extension="/usr/local/Cellar/php@5.6/5.6.35/pecl/20131226/mongodb.so"

All formulas in homebrew/php has been deleted or moved to homebrew/core.

To avoid installation problem in homebrew, you can use the command below:

brew tap kyslik/php
brew install phpXX-mongodb

You must first tap the PHP formula repository from terminal like so

    brew tap homebrew/php

in order to install PHP extensions like MongoDB via Homebrew.
After tapping the formula repository, install the MongoDB extension

    brew install phpxx-mongodb

where xx is the version number.

No only just you install it via brew for correct version of php installed on your machine.

You have to set extension in php.ini too.

In case of macOS and php 5.6 installed.
I have to set

extension="/usr/local/opt/php56-mongo/mongo.so"

The correct path will show mongodb loaded on phpinfo.

The correct command for installation is using homebrew is
brew install homebrew/php/phpxx-mongodb

For ex. to install the driver for php5.6 use :
brew install homebrew/php/php55-mongodb
