SSH multiple VMS remotely using Public IP through pfsense firewall installed on proxmox server

- Hi everyone, I am new to this site. I am using proxmox to setup my own home lab, in which I have installed pfsense which does pretty much everything for me especially the port forwarding. I have a couple of VMs connected to pfsense network. One of them is my web server, to which I have allowed ssh access using my public static IP and forwarding the routes through my home router to pfsense and finally to the webserver. But, I can never find a way to access my other vms simultaneously while I access my webserver. My initial thought was to port forward the ssh connection from WAN Address and redirect it to LAN Address and from there on each of the VMs can be accessed using their hostname using my public static IP which will direct my request to pfsense. Seems like there is so much more to this, which I can't really get through. Any help on how to do this in the right way would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance. Also, I am new to networking and stuff so bear with my curiosity.
