docker container access to local network shared directory

I have tried with the latest version

So i am running docker with windows container. I have created an image with my ASP.Net web application having microsft/iis as base image and ran it. Till this level everything is fine and good. Now this application of mine had to access some files and directory from a shared location on local network.

Expected behavior

The container should be able to access the location as it was able to access my sql server on local network

Actual behavior

Unable to access.

P.S. - my container is connected with nat network, and i can’t make it external as Hyper-V doesn’t let me do it. Making a bridge of Ethernet and nat network also doesn’t resolves this solution. My Ethernet connection doesn’t shows when I run docker network ls else i would have connected my container with it.
