COMMENTS

Is there a finite set of odd primes p where 1/(p+1) sums exactly to 1? (This would be an analog of 1/(2+1) + 1/(3+1) + 1/(5+1) + 1/(7+1) + 1/(11+1) + 1/(23+1) = 1see A000058.)

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := a[n] = Block[ {sm = Sum[ 1/(a[i] + 1), {i, n  1}]}, NextPrime[ Max[ a[n  1], 1/(1  sm)]]]; a[0] = 2; Array[ a, 20]
