We establish a sharp instability theorem for the standing-wave solutions of the inhomogeneous nonlinear Schrödinger equation

$i u_t + \Delta u + V(\epsilon x ) |u|^{p-1} u = 0, \quad x \in \mathbf R^n$

with the critical power $ p = 1 + 4/n, n \ge 2, $ under certain conditions on the inhomogeneous term $ V $ with a small $ \epsilon > 0. $ We also demonstrate that these localized standing-waves converge to standing waves of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation with the homogeneous nonlinearity.
