Helsinki changed its code from 0 to 9 when the access code changed the
other way -- 9 to 0. I think it's more likely that the OP is seeing a
national number with the international flag set en route, perhaps it's
a French or Spanish "derived"/"virtual" number or a bad presentation

In many countries national calls are routed abroad and back to take
advantage of settlement rates. This can cause local numbers to be sent
with mixed flags and truncated lengths. But we can only guess unless
the OP can nab the caller the next time.
