The well-known difficulties of defining a phase operator of an oscillator are considered from the point of view of the canonical transformation to action and phase-angle variables. This transformation turns out to be nonbijective, i.e., it is not a one-to-one onto mapping. In order to make possible the unitarity of its representations in quantum optics we should enlarge the Hilbert space of the problem. In this enlarged space we find a phase operator that, after projection, reproduces previous candidates to represent a well-behaved phase operator in the quantum domain.
