Lemma 10.30.5. Let $R \subset S$ be an injective ring map. Then $\mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(S) \to \mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(R)$ hits all the minimal primes.

Proof. Let $\mathfrak p \subset R$ be a minimal prime. In this case $R_{\mathfrak p}$ has a unique prime ideal. Hence it suffices to show that $S_{\mathfrak p}$ is not zero. And this follows from the fact that localization is exact, see Proposition 10.9.12. $\square$

I think it should be: hits all the minimal primes.

Comment #6009 by Ivan on

could you please explain why it suffices to show that is not zero and we get a such that ? in additon, here is a ring?

Comment #6010 by Fan on

See the section on localisation (00CM)

Comment #6012 by Ivan on

but 00CM doesn't mention about it. even if is exact and is non-zero, is it possible that ? why is non-zero and then there exist such that ?

I think I got it, thanks
