What is the nucleophilicity of halides?

Nucleophilicity of nucleophile is inversely proportional to hydration energy or solvation energy. Fluorine is smallest among hence it highly solvate and more hydration energy ,and hence less nucleophilicity than other halides.

The correct nucleophilicity order is as:
                I- > Br- > Cl- > F-
