We consider the situation where a spin-induced wavy perturbation is present on disks of neutron-star low-mass X-ray binaries. By non-linearly coupling with the perturbation, some modes of disk oscillations resonantly interact with the disks. We examine the resonant conditions under the assumption that the disks are vertically isothermal. The results show that when the spin frequency has some particular values, resonant coupling occurs at some radii. The modes and frequencies of these resonant
