       docker-container-rm - Remove one or more containers


       docker container rm [OPTIONS] CONTAINER [CONTAINER...]


       docker  container  rm will remove one or more containers from the host node. The container
       name or ID can be used. This does not remove images. You cannot remove a running container
       unless  you use the -f option. To see all containers on a host use the docker container ls
       -a command.


Removing a container using its ID

       To remove a container using its ID, find either from a docker ps -a command, or use the ID
       returned  from  the  docker run command, or retrieve it from a file used to store it using
       the docker run --cidfile:

              docker container rm abebf7571666

Removing a container using the container name

       The name of the container can be found using the docker ps -a command. The use  that  name
       as follows:

              docker container rm hopeful_morse

Removing a container and all associated volumes

              $ docker container rm -v redis

       This command will remove the container and any volumes associated with it.  Note that if a
       volume was specified with a name, it will not be removed.

              $ docker create -v awesome:/foo -v /bar --name hello redis
              $ docker container rm -v hello

       In this example, the volume for /foo will remain in tact, but the volume for /bar will  be
       removed. The same behavior holds for volumes inherited with --volumes-from.


       -f, --force[=false]      Force the removal of a running container (uses SIGKILL)

       -h, --help[=false]      help for rm

       -l, --link[=false]      Remove the specified link

       -v, --volumes[=false]      Remove anonymous volumes associated with the container
