Issue with NFS share on LXC CT and permissions

I have a fresh installation of an ubuntu on LXC with docker. I mounted on this LXC a share NFS folder from an VM of Openmediavault like that:
arch: amd64
cores: 6
features: mount=nfs,nesting=1
hostname: Docker
memory: 4096
mp0: /mnt/pve/storage-docker,mp=/mnt/storage-docker
net0: name=eth0,bridge=vmbr0,firewall=1,,hwaddr=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx,ip=192.168.x.x/xx,type=veth
ostype: ubuntu
rootfs: local-lvm:vm-102-disk-0,size=20G
swap: 512
lxc.apparmor.profile: unconfined
lxc.cgroup.devices.allow: a

I set in this share folder a few configuration files from containers docker but I have systematically an error when I launch an 'docker run' like this exemple:
error while creating mount source path '/my/path/appdata/scrutiny': chown /my/path/appdata/scrutiny: operation not permitted

What is surprising is that despite this error the folder of the container in question was created but unable to start correctly..

Any ideas?
