Use LXC containers on a Thin-Pool made out of multiple drives

Hi Proxmoxers :)

I am playing around with this since some time and cant seem to find a solution for this (propably easy) problem.
I have got 2 SSDs which I would like to add to 1 (thin) pool - from this pool I want my LXC conainers to be created. By now I have made everything until I have the pool as a storage but also then I can not select it when I am creating a LXC container - it only shows the standard "local" storage and not my newly created LVM thin pool...
When I do it through the Proxmox UI it's pretty straigth forward - but there I can only select one drive and not 2...
Could someone please help me by posting a viable way on how to do this?

did you enable container content type on the storage?
