We have a subscription to Office 365. I looked at the Wiki which comes with MS Teams and it's very basic. I can't even add a new page, or edit a link to an external website.
Is there another app available to integrate with MS Teams that is a robust information manager? We're going to start out with 20 pages or so, and be adding more over the years so it needs to have multiple Wiki pages which I can organize in a logical fashion. And I'm not familiar with all the apps that can be integrated with MS Teams.
I guess I should be more specific in what I'm looking for:

OneNote can cover most if not all of those requests. That's what most of us use in lieu of the Wiki tab which many wish could be turned off :). Flexible, can be used in apps / Teams / web etc. Best of all it's built in to Microsoft 365 / Teams and included in most licenses.

My company IntelliTect, a premier software development and tech consulting firm, developed our knowledge management app because we weren’t satisfied with the MS Teams Wiki. IntelliWiki offers the essential features you’re looking for in a robust information manager! Our application automates a Table of Contents, which will help organize the 20+ pages you mentioned. IntelliWiki integrates directly into MS Teams and is available within the MS Teams store.
We offer a wide range of wiki, page, and editing features that address the critical needs you expressed:
Let me know if this helps at all! I’d love to get you in touch with our developers.

One of the most important features of a wiki (e.g. Confluence) is the ability to refactor, to move/rename pages, while maintaining the links between them. Otherwise, you just have a virtual file system that holds documents.
It's also helpful to use an arbitrary sub-folder GUI idiom, rather than a rigid/finite structure where tiers are named (as it is in OneNote, where that structure does make some sense for note-taking).
But, I am at the first place I've seen in a couple decades that doesn't have a proper wiki (Confluence, MediaWiki, Twiki, etc) so we do use OneNote. However, the level of integration (via such tooling) is markedly reduced as compared to what I am used to seeing where folks can invest in content that will be part of a "web" of information.
