Let 𝜑 ( 𝑧 ) = 𝑧 𝑛 , 𝑧 𝕌 , for some positive integer 𝑛 and 𝐶 𝜑 the composition operator on the Dirichlet space 𝒟 induced by 𝜑 . In this paper, we completely determine the point spectrum, spectrum, essential spectrum, and essential norm of the operators 𝐶 𝜑 𝐶 𝜑 , 𝐶 𝜑 𝐶 𝜑 and self-commutators of 𝐶 𝜑 , which expose that the spectrum and point spectrum coincide. We also find the eigenfunctions of the operators.
