You can use the docker inspect command to find the IP address of your container as shown below.

$ docker inspect container_name/ID

But it will show other details as well. But if you want to see only the IP address then you need to create a customize command as given below.

$ docker inspect --format '{{ .NetworkSettings.IPAddress }}' container_name_or_id
