VMs on VxLan not reachable from Proxmox nodes

Hello together,
I have a question regarding the correct usage of VxLan. I was able to create an overlay network and I have 3 VMs running it, which can ping each other (vxlan network is The VMs have a second network attached in the net which is a masqueraded bridge). Currently I have one issue left.

From the Proxmox hosts I cannot ping the VMs via their 10.2.0.x IP addresses. However, I can ping them via the non-VxLan 10.1.0.x addresses.
Do I need to create an additional bridge on the proxmox hosts which sits in the 10.2.0.x. net? How would this have to be done? Thanks for your help!
