trying to designate a physical lan to a container

My setup, Asus p6t deluxe motherboard with core I7 processor and 24 gb ram, motherboard has 2 lan ports. I run a pihole and openmediavault which are running always. Im trying to create a pihole,vpn,unbound container and dedicate the 2nd lan port to that container only, to maximize my speed.
as you can see in the attached screenshot 1, enp4s0 is not being used at all, and that is what i want to use for my pihole,vpn,unbound container. if i try to add a bridge using that port(screenshot 2), I get the output of sceenshot 3.Screenshot from 2023-09-21 16-08-42.png2Screenshot from 2023-09-21 16-18-28.png

which is really confusing since im trying to create a bridge of vmbr1 not vrbm0. Could someone help out a noob with this?
