How to insert a two-column figure in the current page when using LaTeX?

I know there is a command like

\begin{figure}[p]
\end{figure}


But when I use it in a two-column model, the $[p]$ cannot work. So I am wondering if there is any solution to preserve the figure in current page when I use $\begin{figuire*}$.

Use the starred variant with [t] option and move the code up a little so that the figure float to the top of the page you intend.
\begin{figure*}[!t]
