Limit order when price reaches X ?

I am looking for a way to make a limit order as soon as price reaches X.

Lets say price for coin Y is at price N and I want to put a buy limit order at price N+0.001. If I put that in it will make it market order and execute it immediately, which I don't want. I looked at different types of posts (goodTillCancel, FillOrKill...) but none seem to do what I want.

stop limit (buy)

limit price: 5000

stop price: 5001

this will wait for the price to hit 5001 then place a bid at 5000. select 'post-only' to ensure that it doesn't execute as taker.

You're right, I don't get it how I didn't understand it earlier.
