How to tunnel to docker through VM using the winscp?

I am running ubuntu 16.4 as a VM on my windows. I have installed a docker container on my VM with this command:
docker run -p 222:22 --name test -d urgi/docker_vre_aio 
ssh -p 222 centos@localhost
Now I would like to get access to my docker folders by WinSCP, I tried tunneling through VM
but it doesn't work, can anyone guide me on how to do it?

Re: How to tunnel to docker through VM using the winscp?

If I understand it correctly, you can login directly using:
ssh -p 222 centos@localhost
There's no tunneling involved.

So do the same in WinSCP. Connect directly to host localhost and port 222.

It didn't work like that, my guess, because my VM is not running on my Windows so it I can't connect through WinSCP using 'localhost' until I know my virtual machine's port.

So what I did was that I created a directory, one in Docker container and one on my host machine and bound them together
docker run --name=test -d -v /media/volume/nyz:/home/centos/nyz  urgi/docker_vre_aio
Now I can connect to my virtual machine through WinSCP and go in the nyz dir and have the same files as I have in the nyz dir in the Container.
