I am interested in a topological classification of connected closed 3-manifold $M$ that have finite homology group $H_1(M)$.

Since $H_1(M)$ is the abelization of the fundamental group $\pi_1(M)$, each closed 3-manifold with finite homotopy group has finite homology group.
It is known that each closed 3-manifold with finite homotopy group $\Gamma$ is a *spherical 3-manifold* (i.e., is the orbit space $S^3/_\sim$ of the 3-sphere, endowed with a free action of the group $\Gamma$).

Question.Is each closed 3-manifold with trivial homology group a spherical 3-manifold? Equivlalently, is the fundamental group $\pi_1(M)$ of a closed 3-manifold finite if its first homology group $H_1(M)$ is finite?
