Let $(R,\frak m)$ be a Noetherian local ring. I am trying to prove that if the natural map $\operatorname{Spec}(\widehat R)\rightarrow \operatorname{Spec}(R)$ is bijective then $\mathfrak{p}\widehat R $ is irreducible for all $\mathfrak p\in \operatorname{Spec}(R)$.

Thank you for your proof or comment.

    $\begingroup$ A DVR (or any local domain of dimension 1 whose completion is still a domain) would be an example. I can't think of anything in higher dimension though. $\endgroup$ Dec 21 '19 at 16:48
