Please have a look at the docs:
A node that is about to be added to the cluster cannot hold any guests. All existing configuration in /etc/pve is overwritten when joining a cluster, since guest IDs could otherwise conflict. As a workaround, you can create a backup of the guest (vzdump) and restore it under a different ID, after the node has been added to the cluster.
