Proposition 31.17.9. Let $\pi : X \to Y$ be a finite surjective morphism of schemes. Assume that $X$ has an ample invertible $\mathcal{O}_ X$-module. If

  1. $\pi $ is finite locally free, or

  2. $Y$ is an integral normal scheme, or

  3. $Y$ is Noetherian, $p\mathcal{O}_ Y = 0$, and $X = Y_{red}$,

then $Y$ has an ample invertible $\mathcal{O}_ Y$-module.

Proof. Case (1) follows from a combination of Lemmas 31.17.6 and 31.17.4. Case (3) follows from a combination of Lemmas 31.17.8 and 31.17.4. In case (2) we first replace $X$ by an irreducible component of $X$ which dominates $Y$ (viewed as a reduced closed subscheme of $X$). Then we can apply Lemma 31.17.7. $\square$

Maybe a little typo, shall be in "Let be a finite ..." , same typo occurs in Lemma 0BD5.
