It's not as simple as you think.
People often think that by merely adding prefixes (un, dis or im) to a word, you can change its meaning.
In (prefix) + correct (word) = incorrect
In + accurate = inaccurate
Mis + lead = mislead
But there are exceptions to this rule.
Take, for example, the word famous. You might think it's the opposite is infamous, but it's not.
Famous means 'known by many people'.
Infamous people are also well-known, but for the wrong reasons.
Just by adding 'in' to famous, you don't get its opposite word. Incidentally, the opposite of famous is obscure.
