How do I run a container and execute bash right after starting it?

I need to create a Node.js project without installing any tool on my host machine, so I’m trying to create the project from the ground up on a Docker container.

I’m running this container using:
docker run -dit -p 8888:8888 -v D:/Projects/Web.:/app --name devbox node

And to execute bash:
docker exec -it af /bin/bash

Is it possible to start this container and automatically go to bash?
