The prophetic schools of the OT and where "prophets" came from

I am intrigued by the office of prophet in the OT. Jeremiah was one prophet against many false prophets. Where did all these prophets come from? In Nehemiah 6 (?) he visits a prophet but rejects the message. By what authority were these prophets, prophets. I also realise that the scriptures accommodate themselves to the common usage of the word.
