Note:
Fixing a gauge is more subtle than usually believed. A discussion can be

found in this Wikipedia link “Gauge Fixing” . In non-abelian theories, gauge

fixing may lead to the Gribov ambiguity where an apparently good gauge may

not
intersect a gauge orbit or may do it more than once. See Gribov
ambiguity
