We prove the existence and uniqueness of the Dirichlet problem for the spacelike, spherically symmetric, constant mean curvature equation with symmetric boundary data in the extended Schwarzschild spacetime. As an application, we completely solve the CMC foliation conjecture which is proposed by Malec and Murchadha (2003 Phys. Rev. D 68 124019).
