In this paper, we consider a kind of nonlinear interface problem in unbounded domains. To solve this problem, we discuss a new coupling of finite element and boundary element by adding an auxiliary circle. We first derive the optimal error estimate of finite element approximation to the coupled FEM-BEM problem. Then we introduce a preconditioning steepest descent method for solving the discrete system by constructing a cheap domain decomposition preconditioner. Moreover, we give a complete analysis to the convergence speed of this iterative method.
