In general relativity, there exists a wormhole solution which is a region connected between two asymptotically flat spacetime regions. The wormhole solution may be obtained in a modified gravity theory and also possibly give non-trivial corrections to the one in general relativity. In this presentation, we investigate the wormhole solution in a modified gravity theory. One of interesting modified gravity theories is a massive gravity in which a non-zero mass is given to a graviton in Einstein gravity theory. One of theoretically consistent models of massive gravity is known as dRGT massive gravity. The general solution of wormhole in dRGT massive gravity is then analyzed and the resulting quantities are compared with ones in general relativity. The results of this research might be a progressive step in the study of Traversable wormholes.
