We construct the D4/D8 brane configuration in the Witten–Sakai–Sugimoto model by introducing a pair of heavy flavour brane with a heavy-light open string. The multiplets created by the heavy-light string acquire mass due to the finite separation of the heavy and light flavour branes thus they could be identified as the heavy-light meson fields in this model. On the other hand the glueball field is identified as the gravitational fluctuations carried by the close string in the bulk, so this model is able to describe the interaction of glueball and heavy-light meson through the open-close string interaction in gauge-gravity duality. We explicitly derive the effective action for the various glueballs and heavy-light mesons then numerically evaluate the associated lowest coupling constants. Afterwards the decay/production widths of various glueballs involving the lowest heavy-light meson, which is identified as meson, are calculated by using our effective action which might be remarkable to theoretically study the charm oscillation e.g. , decay/production in hadron physics. This work extends the previous investigations of glueball in holographic QCD and it is also a further prediction of glueball-meson interaction.
