We establish some versions of fixed-point theorem in a Frechet topological vector space 𝐸 . The main result is that every map 𝐴 = 𝐵 𝐶 (where 𝐵 is a continuous map and 𝐶 is a continuous linear weakly compact operator) from a closed convex subset of a Frechet topological vector space having the Dunford-Pettis property into itself has fixed-point. Based on this result, we present two versions of the Krasnoselskii fixed-point theorem. Our first result extend the well-known Krasnoselskii's fixed-point theorem for U-contractions and weakly compact mappings, while the second one, by assuming that the family { 𝑇 ( , 𝑦 ) 𝑦 𝐶 ( 𝑀 ) where 𝑀 𝐸 and 𝐶 𝑀 𝐸 a compact o p e r a t o r } is nonlinear 𝜑 equicontractive, we give a fixed-point theorem for the operator of the form 𝐸 𝑥 = 𝑇 ( 𝑥 , 𝐶 ( 𝑥 ) ) .
