Base Docker Images and Compatibility with Operating System like Windows 2019 Server

I have a couple of apps that will build images on a windows 2016 server fine and the containers run fine.

the base image was

FROM microsoft/dotnet:2.2-aspnetcore-runtime-nanoserver-sac2016 AS base

We are moving to the Windows 2019 Server platform and with the above we get this error during a docker build. Not docker run

hcsshim::CreateComputeSystem 772c3cc7bab1c345df6e4643ef8ea304b8141fbaf8c861dd0d4e89eef46f3efb: The container operating system does not match the host operating system.

I went back to Visual Studio and regenerated the Dockerfile on the 2019 Server and this time it had

FROM microsoft/dotnet:2.2-aspnetcore-runtime-nanoserver-1803 AS base

however this still throws an error with all the details listed below.

Any ideas? Surely you dont have to build the containers on the same OS that the container image is based on right?

what am I missing? Help
