I believe Finnish driving license is also valid, can anyone confirm this?
NO

Also the question was about electronic validation and not what a local bar will accept

Got the answer from the bank. It will work after I have EU passport / Finnish passport / Finnish ID card. So I guess I have to do the paper application for the Finnish ID card.

A driving license is officially not a valid ID (even though it is accepted in many places as proof of identity), a passport and an ID card are.
Thank you. By the way, they didn't take the passport, they said I have to get the ID card from the police.

I didn't say anything about a bar. I am just trying to figure out if the driving license would work.

I suppose what they wanted to determine whether you're residing here, hence they wanted not only proof of identity but also proof of residence (in the form of a Finnish ID card or a Finnish passport).

Yes, right. I have just talk to someone in Nordea and she said me that the law changed on january 1st. Before driving license was valid, now it ain't.

As far back as I can remember, a driving license in Finland has not been an official form of ID. As I wrote earlier, many places accept it, but it is not and has not been "virallinen henkilötodistus" (official proof of identity). The law that you're referring to has forced banks and telephone operators to change their policies. It's not that a driving license is now less "valid" (legally, as it wasn't an official ID earlier, either), it has been their right to require a virallinen henkilötodistus before too, they just have chosen not to. The same thing e.g. in shops selling alcohol and tobacco, they may but they don't have to accept a driving license when checking the buyer's age, but they will have to accept a virallinen henkilötodistus.

Banks and mobile operators are in the business of identifying as you can use mobile bank or mobile id to identify yourself in online services. I suppose they wouldn't bother asking for official id if they just handled your money or phone calls.

Yes, They need to see that ID Card (even if you are a foreigner you can get it. As long as you have henkilötunnus. They active your online identification after that. It is different from regular banking services so you can open a bank account but cannot get online identification...
