Taxation and unemployment are separate topics.

NewCo Helsinki has a good brochure for starting a business.

When you have enough work in your business that you are no longer unemployed you can just inform TE.
Running a part-time business during unemployment requires approval from TE, call their hotline for details.

It makes sense to contact them immediately (as there are, for example, grants for new entrepreneurs). However, approval is not required. Nowadays first four months are always eligible for unemployment (with profits reducing benefits).
