Flight pricing madness

I was looking at my options to takes a flight from Helsinki to Prague on a business trip. AFAICT, there are only 2 outgoing flights from Helsinki to Prague on my preferred day of departure - one leaving at 16:45 and the other at 17:35.

And I got price quotes from €232 to €1151! (Pictures linked below) WTF?

AFAICS, the flights are a code-share between Finnair and Czech Airlines. But can that be the only reason?

Anybody have a better explanation?
