We report the novel phase diagram of superconductivity (SC) and antiferromagnetism (AFM) in heavy-fermion (HF) pressure(P)-induced superconductors CeRhIn5 and CeIn5 through nuclear-quadrupole-resonance (NQR) measurements under P. The P-induced superconductivity in CeRhIn5 coexists with AFM on a microscopic level in P=1.5-1.9 GPa. By contrast, in CeIn3, the P-induced phase separation of AFM and paramagnetism (PM) takes place without any trace of a quantum phase transition. The outstanding finding is that SC sets in at both the phases magnetically separated into AFM and PM in P=2.28-2.5 GPa.
