How to create Docker images and containers:

To create docker images and containers soon, follow the below-listed commands, steps, and requirements to create a docker file, docker image, and the container.


  • Any virtual machine
  •  A user account with root permissions
  •  Install Docker on the machine.

Stage 1: Create a Docker file:

Create a new directory by using mkdir

~# mkdir myimages

Now, change the directory into my images.

~# cd myimages/

Use the touch command to create an empty Docker file.

# touch Docker file

Now, enter the below content in that file.

 apt get update

Stage 2: Create a Docker image:

Build the image by using the Docker file with the tag name at the present location.

docker build

We can verify the Docker image now.

To delete a specific image.


For deleting all images at a time.

# docker rmi $ (docker images -q) -f

To know your image id.

# docker images -q

 Note: If you want to remove images, you must remove containers first.

Stage 3: Create a Docker Container:

To create a new container with the base image using the following command.

# docker run -name <name of the container> -d -p 8081:8080 <image_name>

docker run container

Now, the Container output will be displayed like this.

To list out the running containers, perform the below commands:

running containers

 To remove a specific container.

remove container

To remove all the containers at a time.

To enter into a running container.

# docker exec -it <containerID> /bin/bash

We can start and stop the containers by using the following commands:

# docker start <ContainerID>

# docker stop <ContainerID>


Thus, the above steps, commands, and images describe the successful creation of docker images and containers easier than ever. Hence, the docker creation simplifies the existing and new tasks simpler than a usual one.
