If you want to stop a docker container here's the command to do it.

docker container stop CONTAINER_ID

The main process inside the container will receive SIGTERM, and after a grace period, SIGKILL. This will stop a running container.

If you want to restart a Docker container then you need to use the following command

docker container restart CONTAINER_ID

This would restart the container.
