    When I was doing this for a work project I seem to remember having to deploy the app to the Tomcat root.

    Deploying my application at the root in Tomcat

    So basically you would need to add some steps to your Dockerfile to accomplish this.

    instead of using CMD ["/usr/local/tomcat/bin/", "run"], try to do it as ENTRYPOINT ["/usr/local/tomcat/bin/", "run"]

    If this do not resolve your problem, try to see the logs. In the logs you will see something like deploying webapp ROOT. If you do not see this logs but you get server startup took ***ms, then try to check war file locally or see if there are some errors popping up in catalina.out file inside logs folder by connecting to the docker container. (docker ps- command to check the docker container running your dockerfile)

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
