Creating an openVPN server with both public and local network

in our setup we have 10 LXC containers, these 7 containers have local + public network from proxmox only. Means that each one has a public IP + a local ip (192.168.9.x) being served only in proxmox

Then we have 3 servers which only have local network (192.168.9.x) and this is working fine, I can ping the each other via local network.

So now I created a OpenVPN with public + local network which isn't working as expected.

The idea is that I'm able to get public and local IP and that from my remote client machine I get to ping other containers inside this local network. The only thing that I managed to do was to to get into the VPN with its public IP. So if I check my public IP i'm running the same as my VPN IP. Now I want to achieve the same with the local network aswell.

I tried doing configuration by tun and by tap. By tun I got the result that I explain above, and by TAP I never got it working. My proxmox container conf file was edited to support the VPN aswell. Thank you
