MathOverflow is a question and answer site for professional mathematicians. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Maybe it is too easy but I want to know that: If $R$ is regular local ring of Krull dimension $2$ and $m$ is the maximal ideal of $R$. (It means that height $m$ is $2$). Can we find any ideal of height $2$ different from $m$?

No. Since it is the unique maximal ideal, $\mathfrak m$ contains every prime ideal (its complement is the set of all units of $R$).
