Lemma 26.11.8. Let $X$ be a scheme whose underlying topological space is a finite discrete set. Then $X$ is affine.

**Proof.**
Say $X = \{ x_1, \ldots , x_ n\} $. Then $U_ i = \{ x_ i\} $ is an open neighbourhood of $x_ i$. By Lemma 26.11.2 it is affine. Hence $X$ is a finite disjoint union of affine schemes, and hence is affine by Lemma 26.6.8.
