In this paper, we consider a nonlinear elliptic system which is an extension of the single equation derived by investigating the stationary states of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation. We establish the existence and uniqueness of solutions to the Dirichlet problem on the ball. In addition, the nonexistence of the ground state solutions under certain conditions on the nonlinearities and the complete structure of different types of solutions to the shooting problem are proved.
