Unable to access Container URL through OVERLAY network

Hi everyone, I am a noob to Docker. I am unable to access the URL of a service that is running on a container from the host. In my case, Windows is the host machine. Coming to my scenario, I have installed Oracle DB in one container and domain running in another container. I have used 1st container DB to create RCU. Those containers are running in different docker machines and those are connected via an overlay network. I can able to ping between container to container and container to host, but not host to the container. Now my admin server is running in the 2nd container. I am unable to access the URL from either eth0 or eth1. Am I missing any configuration here? Please help me regarding this.

I have followed https://docs.docker.com/engine/userguide/networking/get-started-overlay/#overlay-networking-and-swarm-mode to create overlay and swarm in Windows.

Thanks in advance…
