Close docker ports after config of Nginx reverse proxy?

I'm using a docker container for Gotify on DigitalOcean using:

docker run -d \
--name gotify \
-p 8899:80 \
-v /opt/docker-data/gotify/data:/app/data \
--restart always \

which is working fine going to

I then installed Nginx locally on the server and configured it for reverse proxy with letsencrypt and that is working now by going to without typing in :8899

The issue I'm having is that port 8899 is still open to the internet automatically when I run the container and I want to run the Gotify docker container without access to 8899 and only working through the local Nginx reverse proxy on port 80.

I'm confused on how to do this. I looked into creating new docker networks, but Gotify conflicts at port 80 with my local Nginx install at port 80 since it seems I use port 8899:80 within the Gotify image?

probably you need to listen on localhost:8899 and deny from outside:8899. probably a firewall config

Answer is to use:


Now only works via local Nginx proxy with port :8899 not forwarded to the outside anymore.
