Running a VM from another network to the node

Hi all,

Firstly, I'm pretty new to all this, so if I don't explain somthing correctly, this is why but here goes...

I'm running Proxmox VE on a NUC and up to now I've got PiHole and Homeassisnt running as separate VMs.
The NUC is hardwired to the router on the main network. I've created another network, which is isolated from the main network, to carry all of my IoT devices.

Is there a way to run the VM on a separate network to that of the node (NUC)? Or is this not possible?
When I setup the IoT network, I could have associated a port from the router but then I'd have the same issue of PiHole etc not being able to communicate with devices on the main network.

Thanks in advance for the help.
