Question about the Ainur... Can't Post

So this is my first time reading The Silmarillion and I find it very fascinating! I listen to Martin Shaw's audiobook as I read along. I'm also trying to take some notes as I go to retain information. So to my question...

1. The Ainur are the "gods" Iluvatar created before anything else was made.

2. Some of the Ainur chose to dwell in Arda and to become of the World (still very powerful, of course). They became known as the Valar (greater "gods") and the Maiar (lesser "gods").

Question: Since the Valar and Maiar dwell in Arda, are there Ainur that never went to Arda (meaning they would be neither Valar nor Maiar)?
