What is the difference between a START and RUN command?

START command is used to start an already created container. On the other hand, a RUN command is used to CREATE and START a non-existing container from a specified image.

So basically a docker RUN command does both CREATE and START commands combined.


> docker run [options] <image_name> [initial_command]
