Binding Docker container ports to the host on Ubuntu 18.04 inside Hyper-V on Windows 10

The binding did not work for me until I switched from Internal Virtual Switch to External Virtual Switch and while switching I were getting the following error:

[Window Title]
Virtual Switch Manager for MY-MACHINE

[Main Instruction]
Error applying Virtual Switch Properties changes

[Content]
Failed while adding virtual Ethernet switch connections.

[Expanded Information]
External Ethernet adapter 'Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller' is already bound to the Microsoft Virtual Switch protocol.

until I switched Hyper-V Extensible Virtual Switch off on my network adapter properties page (after I created External Virtual Switch it switched on back):

Now I have Ubuntu 18.04 on a Hyper-V machine with the following Virtual Switch:

And after running Oracle Database with the following command:

sudo docker run -d -it --rm --name oracle12se -v /home/oracle/oradata12:/opt/oracle/oradata -p 1522:1521 -p 5502:5500 -m 4G oracle/database-se:12.2.0.1

I have the following iptables configuration on Ubuntu:

sudo iptables -L -n
