Location of VM's qcow2 image in ceph

I have setup a test proxmox cluster of 4 nodes with Ceph. I have created a single OSD in each server and have created Ceph Pool with replication factor of 2. I have also tested the failover of a test VM which I have created in the one of the nodes by shutting down the node. I observed, when the node was shutdown the VM migrated to another node and started on it's own with the data intact. I, however, could not find the location of the qcow2 image of the VM. Also, how can I find in which node(s) did the copy of the VM's image get created?
