I've just imported a model into ICEM CFD and it consisted of curves only. The model can be seen below.


So I can create surfaces from the body and its fins (2 large ones and 2 small ones). But I want to merge the surfaces of the fins to the body so I will be able to mesh it correctly. The fins were not attached to the body since there weren't any point in the model.

What should I do to attach the fins to the body ?

Iīm not very sure if I understand your doubt. But... if you want to add the finīs surfaces to the body you can "right click" in bodyīs part, where you have the rest of your body, and then "add to part" -> "add to part by selection" and then Itīll open a pop-up and you can choose the entities you want. In your case, surfaces.

ICEM surfacing tools may not be as powerful as CAD program. It is better to import your model directly from CAD or do some reworking in designmodeler.
