I tried something similar and ended up with a similar error. As far as I understand the documentation the answer in your case is "5". 
See: https://docs.gluster.org/en/v3/Administrator%20Guide/Managing%20Volumes/#expanding-volumes
"... When expanding distributed replicated and distributed dispersed volumes, you need to add a number of bricks that is a multiple of the replica or disperse count. ..."
One suboptimal idea could be: divide the new device in 5 partitions and add these 5 partitions as new bricks and when you get the next device, move one of this bricks to the new device, and so on ... until you have all 5 additional devices. 
I'm curious for other ideas.


Kind regards
