Let $X, Y$ be two birational projective varieties which are isomorphic in codimension 1. Suppose $H$ is an ample divisor on $Y$, and $H'$ be its strict transform on $X$, suppose we can run MMP with respect to $K_X + H'$, is it true that there are only flips in this process(i.e. no divisoral or fibre contractions).
I am not sure if I oversimplify the picture, the question comes from the Kawamata's result that flops connect minimal models, where he claimed that running MMP with scaling between minimal models, there are only flips appearing. I can understand the corresponding statement in [BCHM], where they run MMP over a common ample model, hence no divisoral or fibre contractions. But I was wondering if this is a phenomenon only relies on the codimension - i.e. MMP only changes the part where two varieties are non-isomorphism?
