why dont we say 'a könyv hosszú, ami az új televízió mellett van'?

If you want to say "a könyv" here, you should place the relative clause after it.

A könyv, amelyik a televízió mellett van, hosszú.

Why is it wrong to say ami instead of amelyik?

Is it necessary to use 'az a', 'azok a', etc. in these structures? And what is the difference between 'ami' and 'amelyik'. I still can't get it...
