How to install ceramic tile over a countertop?

I have a laminate material glued over a wooden counter top...when water gets under it pops up..i thought the laminate could be covered with tile some how by rough sanding or scoring....or...the laminate could be removed since it seems to come up when wetted..then sanded to smooth off any adhesive..then tiled over. It is not a big area...I was told by a recommended contractor it won't work.... I will have tear out the top and replace with granite or other top.
