What error message do you see?

What version of your base operating system and what version of docker are you using?

Sorry to state the obvious, but you can only run a Docker FreeBSD image if your base operating system is FreeBSD. There is more information at
https://wiki.freebsd.org/Docker
and note that Docker under FreeBSD “should be considered experimental”

If you are running Linux as your base OS and you want to run FreeBSD under that, then you need a full virtualization solution (e.g. KVM, QEMU, Virtualbox), not Docker.
