       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

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

              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

              $ 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 the volumes associated with the container
