How to render unity application headlessly by nvidia gpu in docker?

  docker, nvidia, unity3d, xvfb

I have a Unity application. I don’t want to run it in headless mode with -batchmode and -nographic in docker.

For now, I can use xvfb to render the Unity headlessly in CPU maybe? But I have a nvidia gpu card, and my container is built from ‘nvidia/cudagl:11.1.1-runtime-ubuntu20.04’. So is there a way that xvbf can use gpu card?

Here is the output of nvidia-smi in docker:
