problem with docker container creating a VPN tunnel


I’m trying to make an OpenVPN server using docker I just started creating a tunnel between 2 containers after installing openvpn on both container the command :

openvpn --dev tun1 --ifconfig

gave me this error:

Mon Jul 12 12:26:28 2021 disabling NCP mode (--ncp-disable) because not in P2MP client or server mode
Mon Jul 12 12:26:28 2021 OpenVPN 2.4.7 x86_64-pc-linux-gnu [SSL (OpenSSL)] [LZO] [LZ4] [EPOLL] [PKCS11] [MH/PKTINFO] [AEAD] built on Apr 27 2021

is the problem related to working on a container?
is it fine to make a OpenVPN server on a ubuntu image-based container?
if there is any other tips to make an OpenVPN server please tell me I’m new in this topic.
