We use the full Run II dataset consisting of 10.4 fb −1 of pp̄ collisions recorded by the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider at sqrt s = 1.96 TeV to search for new exotic multiquark states. We report the evidence of a new state X(5568) decaying to Bsπ seen in the Bs → J/ψφ decay channel and its independent confirmation in the semi-leptonic channel Bs → μ± Ds∓ X. We also report on the search for other exotic states.
