Letting be an embedded curve in a Riemannian manifold , we prove the existence of minimal disc-type surfaces centered at inside the surface of revolution of around , having small radius, and intersecting it with constant angles. In particular we obtain that small tubular neighborhoods can be foliated by minimal discs.
