Docker run on a system where ip forwarding is disabled

In my environment security team has IP forwarding disabled on my RHEL servers. When I run docker run, I get the message “WARNING: IPv4 forwarding is disabled. Networking will not work.”. So when run I docker run with -p options, I can’t reach the applications server port in the container. But if I run with the --network=host, I can reach the application on it’s default port (8443). But then I won’t be able to start up multiple containers. Is there any other alternatives for me without enabling ip forwarding on the physical host?

With this, I can reach the application(https://hostname/)
docker run -d -v /tmp:/tmp --env ZONE=RAVI_ZONE --name dev_moog --hostname dev_moog moog.

If I run this, I can’t reach the application (https://hostname:13443/)
docker run -d -v /tmp:/tmp -p 7306:3306 -p 13443:8443 --env ZONE=RAVI_ZONE --name dev_moog --hostname dev_moog moog.
