    Smile in vs after

    I wonder if I could replace in with after in the following example:
    I'll see him in a minute. (/hour/day/week/month etc)

    and vise versa:
    I saw him after a minute. (/hour/day/week/month etc)

    Thanks in advance!

    Do not use 'after' here!

    Better use later instead of after...
    I saw him a minute later.
