Well it's easy:

First list down all the images you have using this command:

$ docker images

Choose the image you want to make a container out of . for eg. if the image is ubuntu, Then use the below command to launch an ubuntu container:

$ docker run --name ubuntu-image ubuntu:latest

the above command follow the syntax:

$ docker run --name <name of the container> <name of the image>

With this command you have started your container, to view all the started containers use the below command:

$ docker ps

Hope this helped :)
