Architecture: Use reverse proxy

I am building up a server at my home for running some of my LAMP stack based applications. I will want to have some of my applications available from the internet.
So I am wondering if I should run an NGINX based reverse proxy on my server that routes traffic to the specific container? Or should I let the traffix be routed directly from the internet into the container?

Appreciate any thoughts on that from you!

Using nginx as a reverse proxy will probably be the easier of those two. I do have a guide (completely docker based), let me know if you need one.

I am currently working on setting up the environment as you described it in that tutorial. Thanks so far for your support…

The proxy works. But how to setup the network architecture?
