The great circle

Given a sphere, a circle is called a great circle if it is the intersection of the sphere with a plane passing through its center.

Now, 5 distinct great circles dissect a sphere into \(n\) pieces. If \(m\) and \(M\) are the minimum and maximum values of \(n\), respectively, then find \(m+M\).
