You can write your  logic inside action method on page load and check if it is Y record type. if not you can redirect that to standard page.

Y record type visualforce page
<apex:page standardController="Opportunity" extension="yourextensionname" action="{!redirectPage}">

Y Controller extension
public pagereference redirectPage(){
//write your logic here
if(opp.recordTypeId=='X record type')
   PageReference oppPage = new PageReference( + '/e?retURL=%2F' +;
   return oppPage;

Hi San,

Please find the solution for your issue:
<apex:page standardController="Opportunity" extensions="NewOppController" action="{!redirectPage}">
public class NewOppController {
    Opportunity opp {get; set;}
    public NewOppController(ApexPages.StandardController controller) {
        opp = (Opportunity) controller.getRecord();
    public PageReference redirectPage() {
        String rtStr = ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get('RecordType');
        Id rtId = Schema.SObjectType.Opportunity.getRecordTypeInfosByName().get('Test RT').getRecordTypeId();
        String rtXStr = String.valueOf(rtId);
        System.debug('==================rtStr :'+rtStr);
        if(rtXStr.contains(rtStr)) {
            return new PageReference('/apex/YouCustomerVFPage?field=12343');
        } else {
            return new PageReference('/apex/YouCustomerVFPage123');

Either wa you can't send it to standard page as we are overridding the New object it will be in infinite loop, if we pass it to Standard Functionalaity.

Please do let me know if it helps you.
