Windows Server 2016- Running Applications on docker Containers

Dear Community,

We want to migrate to Windows Server 2016. Liscensing is every expansive so we want to run apps on containers we have apps like oracle erp Linux machine, on house (not cloud service), 4 more apps. Our organization is medium. We have our apps running on VMs. But Vm are mores secure as they have their own OS.They dont sue Host’s kernal etc. Is it save to move my apps on docker container ? Since erp is linux based I am afraid we can’t run it on Windows OS.
I think linux OS can run widows based container but its not other way around right?Please correct me if I am wrong.

I am a new member here.

Thanks.
