Abstract: Let $ \Omega=\Omega_1\setminus \overline{\Omega}_2$, where $ \Omega_1$ and $ \Omega_2$ are two smooth bounded pseudoconvex domains in $ \mathbb{C}^n, n\geq 3,$ such that $ \overline{\Omega}_2\subset \Omega_1.$ Assume that the $ \overline{\partial}$-Neumann operator of $ \Omega_1$ is compact and the interior of the Levi-flat points in the boundary of $ \Omega_2$ is not empty (in the relative topology). Then we show that the Hankel operator on $ \Omega$ with symbol $ \phi, H^{\Omega}_{\phi},$ is compact for every $ \phi\in C(\overline{\Omega})$ but the $ \overline{\partial}$-Neumann operator on $ \Omega$ is not compact.
