Welcome to the Forum.
Which 9mm??
Different ones have different disassembly methods.

Owners manual?

WARNING:
To complete disassembly, you will be required to
pull the trigger. If you have failed to properly
unload your pistol and a round is left in the chamber, the
pistol will discharge and may cause injury. Therefore, you
must visually inspect the chamber and magazine well
(opening) to ensure that they are empty before pulling the
trigger.


Make certain that the
chamber is clear. (Figure 11)
• With the pistol still pointing in
a safe direction and the slide
closed, pull the trigger once
and remove your finger from
the trigger and out of the
trigger guard. (Figure 12)
• Move the slide approximately 1/8” (Figure 13) to the rear and
depress the takedown catch/barrel stop on both sides of the
frame with your thumb and forefinger. (Figure 14)
• Allow the slide to return forward while depressing the
takedown catch/barrel stop.(Figure 14-15)
• Grasp the slide from the top, just behind the front sight and
remove the slide by pulling it forward while being careful to
retain the recoil spring and guide rod assembly. (Figure 15)

If that doesn't work, see a gun smith.

Default sigma slide

pull the trigger all the way back and hold it while pushing down on the take down and sliding off the barrell. I know it takes and extra hand or use a quick tie to hold the trigger back.
