Nickelates are known for their metal to insulator transition (MIT) and an unusual magnetic ordering, occurring at = T. Here, we investigate thin films of SmNiO subjected to different levels of epitaxial strain. We find that the original bulk behavior (T < T) is strongly affected by applying compressive strain to the films. For small compressive strains, a regime where T = T is achieved, the paramagnetic insulating phase characteristic of the bulk compound is suppressed and the MIT becomes 1st order. Further increasing the in-plane compression of the SmNiO lattice leads to the stabilization of a single metallic paramagnetic phase.
