If p:
1) is not the 1st element of the set of primes;
2) does not equal 2;
3) equals either minimum 3 or other primes;
(2^p+1)/3=p*
(p*-->prime can be equal p or not).

The problem: if p=17 then p*=17*a (a--> any integer).

The question: is there any prime as 17?

At the end, I can say that "1" is not prime and when p=1 then p* also equals 1 and if we noticed that the conditions (1, 2, 3) contain the numbers which are used in the formula.

Sincerely,

I'm not sure I completelf follow you, but what you've written looks remarkably similar to the conjecture here:
