# Beamer: \only command with figure inside itemize environment issue

I've been trying to put a figure that should be seen alone in one slide with \only<>. It actually works, but the problem can be seen on the following figure (red rectangle):

My code for this frame is:

\begin{frame}[t]{Chile -- CONAF}
\only<5>{
\begin{figure}
\centering
\end{figure}
}
\begin{itemize}
\item<2-> Principales funciones de CONAF:
\setbeamertemplate{itemize items}[triangle]
\begin{itemize}
\item<3-> Superficie afectada a la fecha.
\item<6-> Silvicultura preventiva.
\end{itemize}
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}


As you can see, I get text below the figure thet I'm trying to put alone using \only<>. Notice that after \only<>, which is number 5, item<6> should appear continuing itemize in the following slide.

I'm just starting with beamer, so I think it might be something very simple, but to be honest I've been searching for a while with no exit at all.

Some considerations:

1. Forget about the citation in the figure above, it's done with tikz inside \only<>.
2. I removed all spanish accents so you don't have problems while compiling.
3. I could "band-aid" fix the problem by setting the width of the figure bigger, but it's not what I'm looking for.

If you want the figure alone on one page, I suggest another frame. To continue the itemize I used againframe.

\documentclass{beamer}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}<-4>[label=Chile]{Chile -- CONAF}
\begin{itemize}
\item<2-> Principales funciones de CONAF:
\setbeamertemplate{itemize items}[triangle]
\begin{itemize}
\item<3-> Superficie afectada a la fecha.
\item<6-> Silvicultura preventiva.
\end{itemize}
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}

\begin{frame}{Chile -- CONAF}
\begin{figure}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=0.5\textwidth]{example-image-a}
\end{figure}
\end{frame}

\againframe<6->{Chile} % continue with slide 6 of frame "Chile"

\end{document}


Frames 4 and 5:

If you want the figure on the same page you could use minipage.

\documentclass{beamer}

\begin{document}

\begin{frame}[label=Chile]{Chile -- CONAF}
\begin{minipage}{0.49\textwidth}
\begin{itemize}
\item<2-> Principales funciones de CONAF:
\setbeamertemplate{itemize items}[triangle]
\begin{itemize}
\item<3-> Superficie afectada a la fecha.
\item<6-> Silvicultura preventiva.
\end{itemize}
\end{itemize}
\end{minipage}
\hfill
\begin{minipage}{0.49\textwidth}
\begin{figure}
\centering
\includegraphics<5->[width=\textwidth]{example-image-a}
\end{figure}
\end{minipage}
\end{frame}

\end{document}
