I'm getting a dead code warning in a for loop at i++. Why do I get that, and how do I solve this problem?

public static boolean Method(int p) {
    for(int i = 2; i < p; i++) {  // here is the problem, at i++
        if(p % i == 0);         
            return false;
    }
    return true;    
}

Problem is in this line:

if(p % i == 0); 
Remove semicolon and try again
