# Is the Jacobson radical of a ring with finite spectrum and nilpotent nilradical nilpotent?

I tried to solve 1.3.3 in Bosch, Algebraic Geometry and Commutative Algebra.

I did not find a way to solve it. But I found this: Finitely many prime ideals ⇒ cartesian product of local rings.

And I am not able to show that in a commutative ring with unit, $R$, which has only finitely many prime ideals and nilpotent nilradical the Jacobson radical is also nilpotent.

I would be happy if someone could give me a hint how to solve it. Thanks. You can find the exercise from Bosch in the link.

This question came from our site for professional mathematicians.

This is not true. For instance, consider the localization $R=\mathbb{Z}_{(p)}$, or more generally the localization of any domain at a height $1$ prime. The only primes in $R$ are $0$ and $(p)$, the nilradical is $0$, but the Jacobson radical is $(p)$.
