# Infinite domain with finite number of prime ideals(elements)

While trying to prove one property of commutative rings with units I can't prove one fact without assuming existence of infinitely many different prime ideals or elements. I tried to test if it was the neccesary assumptions, but I failed, since I don't know any "toy"-examples of such rings.

I know only one example of this kind ($\mathbf{Q} [x]/ (x^2)$ ) but it's not a domain.

So,

Are there any infinite domains with finite number of prime ideals?

If no, then are there any infinite domains with finite (but nontrivial) number of prime elements?

I am interested in noncommutative examples as well. Sorry if this question is too elementary.

Well, infinite fields do have a finite number of prime ideals, but I suppose that’s not what you want. – Emil Jeřábek Jun 14 '12 at 14:00
Discrete valuation rings, such as $F[[x]]$, $\mathbb Z_p$, or $\mathbb Z_{(p)}$, are a slightly better example. – Emil Jeřábek Jun 14 '12 at 14:22

For the commutative case. Take the set of all rational numbers whose denominators are coprime with a fixed integer $n$. Then the only prime ideals are generated by the prime divisors of $n$.
For a noncommutative example you could take the first Weyl algebra $A_1(k)$ with generated over a field $k$ by elements $x$ and $y$ subject to the relation $xy-yx-1$. This is a Noetherian domain which is simple, that is the only two-sided ideals are 0 and the ring itself.
