COMMENTS

Analogous to Fortunate numbers and like them, the entries appear to be primes. In fact, the first 1200 terms are primes. Are all terms prime?
a(n) is the first (smallest) m such that m > 1 and n!+ m is prime. The second such m is A087202(n). a(n) must be greater than nextprime(n)1.  Farideh Firoozbakht, Sep 01 2003
Sequence A069941, which counts the primes between n! and n!+n^2, provides numerical evidence that the smallest prime p greater than n!+1 is a prime distance from n!; that is, pn! is a prime number. For pn! to be a composite number, p would have to be greater than n!+n^2, which would imply that A069941(n)=0. [From T. D. Noe, Mar 06 2010]
