LXC Containers Ping Problem

I have setup two debian LXC containers on a debian host.

I have used bridge network and network is as follows:

host: ip -
container1: ip -
container2: ip -

I can ping host to both containers and vice versa but cannot ping container1 from container2 or container2 from container1. I get "Destination Host unreachable message". There is no firewall setup in any of the machines not even at host.

Also, I haved added default gateway of on container1 and container2.

I can ping external computer on LAN and external computer can also ping LXC guest but the LXC containers can't ping one another.

I am using LXC network type as veth. Should I use macvlan?
