In this paper, we discuss the Weyl problem in warped product spaces. We apply the method of continuity and prove the openness of the Weyl problem. A counterexample is constructed to show that the isometric embedding of the sphere with canonical metric is not unique up to an isometry if the ambient warped product space is not a space form. Then, we study the rigidity of the standard sphere if we fixed its geometric center in the ambient space. Finally, we discuss a Shi–Tam type of inequality for the Schwarzschild manifold as an application of our findings.
