Add drive to RAID 5

Hello everybody. I have a HP Proliant 120 gen 9 server with a B140i RADI controller. 

Originally i have installed 3 2 TB drives and arranged a RAID 5 

Now i bought another 2 TB drive to expand RAID capacity but Smart Storage Administrator do not allow me to add new drive to RAID. The only option is to add it as spare.

Can anyone help me with this issue?

Thanks in advanced.
