Is is possible to install docker inside of WSL 2?

Is it possible to install a fully functional docker inside of Windows 10 WSL 2 without using docker for windows?
I have Docker with WSL 2 backend running but to test docker swarm features I also need docker-machine, which is not included with the newest docker version. Output of docker --version

Docker version 19.03.5, build 633a0ea

Or is it possible to get docker-machine working with the WSL 2 backend?

For anyone searching: No, seems like it’s not possible.
