Is it possible to create a new Account or Contact within the same Opportunity record page?

¿Is it possible to create a Contact or Account when creating an Opportunity manually and directly? I mean, is there a way to add a field or something to create an Account or Contact within the same record page of ann opportunity?
I need to implement a field so that in addition to searching for an existing account, I have the option of adding a new account when creating an opportunity in order to relate that new opportunity with an existing or new Account. 

Something very similar to what is shown in the following image:
Associate an Account or create a new one from the Opportunity Record Page.

Hi Javier

Yes - when a user clicks the lookup field for Account, it will allow them to both search and Create a new Account (provided their profile has the appropriate Create permissions), as seen in this screenshot below:

A lookup field to Contact could also be created on Opportunity which would have the same functionality. If this helps, please mark this as Best Answer

Cheers
