My docker container did not come with and of the tools recommended when you google for listening ports: netstat, ss, lsof, or nmap. Copying and pasting the all in one after running docker exec -it /bin/bash worked. I was able to diagnose my problem as result. Thank you!

Really useful script, thanks for sharing!
I've made a little addition to include TCP states, if anyone cares:
