Well, the first digit is 3 – that’s prime.

1 is not prime, 14 is not prime, 141 is not
prime, 1415 is not prime, but 14159 is prime.

So far, so good. 8 is not prime, 84 is not prime, 8462 is not
prime,…

The next prime is 3048 digits long.

I
think the methodology is fine - difficult but I think it will work.
The problem is that pi is a non-repeating and unending decimal, and we
do not have a decimal expansion of pi that is infinitely long. We have
only been able to establish the correct decimal expansion of pi for a
finite length.
