No it does not. The Oort cloud is not a planet. It is a sphere of comets around our solar system.
Oort cloud comets
comets are on the outside of the solor system but loop in from the sun I believe from astronimical studies in 8th grade, (which my annoying science teacher practically crammed down my throat for a couple of months) there is a large belt of comets just past Pluto.
The Oort cloud.However, technically the Oort cloud IS part of our Solar System.See related link for more information.
The Oort cloud is spherical cloud of or shell comets nearly a light-year from the Sun. Comets are disturbed from this cloud by gravitational attraction and other factors and pass into the area occupied by the inner planets (Earth for example). Scientists then can observe these transient bodies to determine the composition of material in the Oort cloud.
Comets come from the Oort cloud and the Kupier Belt
Jan Hendrik Oort suggested that comets come from the Oort Cloud. This is sometimes called the Oort Hypothesis.
No. The Oort cloud is way beyond the orbit of Saturn. It's where many of the comets come from.
Rocky asteroids. Icy comets often live in and come from the Kuiper Belt.

Oort (Yes - that is what it is called)
Comets are created in the Oort cloud. The Oort cloud is a big circle of ice and dust surrounding our solar system.
