Disabling SharePoint Modern Pages

Frequent Contributor

Is there a way to default the "add a page" option to something other than a site page? At this current stage as we are limited to the functionality of adding webparts to Modern Pages, our users still would like to use Wiki or Webpart pages but now they have to navigate to the Site Pages library to create these pages.

We mean the button with the text "add a page" that appears when you're on a sharepoint site and you click on the Gear icon ⚙

Ok did not read correctly sorry don't know how maybe with PNP
