COMMENTS
Up to n=10000, 1166 of the first 1228 odd primes appear as fixed points of a(n), i.e., 95%.
Conjecture: for large p prime, the odd primes (except p) appear as fixed points of b(n), where b(n) is the smallest positive divisor not yet in the sequence of p*A000217(n-1); n >= 1 (see link).

EXAMPLE
For n = 1: a(1) = 1 is the smallest divisor of 7*0 not yet in the sequence.
For n = 23: a(23) = 23 is a fixed point and the smallest divisor of 7*253 not yet in the sequence.
For n = 73: a(73) = 73 is a fixed point and the smallest divisor of 7*2628 not yet in the sequence.
