The article contains a new proof that the Hilbert scheme of irreducible surfaces of degree m in ℙ m+1 is irreducible except m = 4. In the case m = 4 the Hilbert scheme consists of two irreducible components explicitly described in the article. The main idea of our approach is to use the proof of Chisini conjecture [Kulikov Vik. S., On Chisini's conjecture II, Izv. Math., 2008, 72(5), 901-913 (in Russian)] for coverings of projective plane branched in a special class of rational curves.
