Integrating SAML with Okta into .Net application

Say I have an existing .Net MVC application/web server that I want to integrate SAML into.

Do I just create an Okta application using the dev-XXXXXX.oktapreview.com site and follow the quick start instructions to plug in the correct URIs and I'm set? 

I'm a bit confused as you guys posted a few open source APIs like SAML2 which dicusses setting up an identity provider and an entirely different installation guide than what is on your website.

Could you clear up for me, do I need to create my own identity provider? I thought Okta acted as an IdP and my existing .Net application was the SP?

 Depending on what .NET application you have, we provide the following documentation to integrate the .NET application in Okta.
https://developer.okta.com/code/dotnet/
For SAML integration I belive this may shed some light : https://developer.okta.com/standards/SAML/?_ga=2.85938841.1050019965.1516129234-1729534110.1516129234
​Also Okta will act as IPD and your .NET application will be the SP.
If you require further assistance on this you can also open a Support ticket.
