The world No 19 had a horrible start to the year, losing his opening match in his first five tournaments, but has found some form on his favoured clay.
Third seed Monaco beat Argentinian countryman Guido Pella 6-4 7-6 (10-8) in the semi-finals, while No 6 seed Nieminen was a 7-5 4-6 6-3 winner over Dutchman Igor Sijsling.
"It's my first final this year, so I'm very happy. I played a couple of good matches, so I've got good rhythm," Monaco told the ATP's official website.
"We played a great match. We've known each other for a long time and have had many practices together. In the second set especially, we fought until the last point."
In the doubles, Britain's Dom Inglot will play in the final alongside Filipino partner Treat Huey after the duo beat top-seeded British pair Colin Fleming and Jonny Marray 6-2 6-7 (2-7) 10-5.
