Lemma 29.56.3. Let $f : Y \to X$ be a morphism of schemes. Assume

  1. $X$ and $Y$ are affine, and

  2. $f$ is quasi-finite.

Then there exists a diagram

\[ \xymatrix{ Y \ar[rd]_ f \ar[rr]_ j & & Z \ar[ld]^\pi \\ & X & } \]

with $Z$ affine, $\pi $ finite and $j$ an open immersion.

Proof. This is Algebra, Lemma 10.123.14 reformulated in the language of schemes. $\square$
