COMMENTS
Conjecture: a(n) exists for any n > 0. Also, for any n > 0, there are primes p and q such that pi(p*n) = q*n.

EXAMPLE
a(1) = 5 since pi(5*1) = 3 = prime(2*1) with 2 and 5 both prime.
a(2) = 277 since pi(277*2) = 101 = prime(13*2) with 13 and 277 both prime.
a(10) = 3089 since pi(3089*10) = 3331 = prime(47*10) with 47 and 3089 both prime.
