By default systemctl command will not run inside docker container. But you can start your jenkins service by using the below given commands.

$ /etc/rc.d/init.d/jenkins start
$ service jenkins start

Hope this will help you

When I run first command it shows
No such file or directory
Please help

Try with second one. But before that install service software.
I've installed and started the jenkins by this cmd

/etc/rc.d/init.d/jenkins strat

and it shows output this:

jenkins start ok

it does not open any port for webUI

By default, Jenkins works on Port 8080. So try with this. If you exposed your container then try with your VM IP and port no. Or check with the docker ps command.
