Let´s first check the version we have. The first time you run this command, the polkadot docker image will be downloaded.

Once you are done experimenting and picking the best node name :) you can start polkadot as daemon, exposes the polkadot ports and mount a volume that will keep your blockchain data locally: Once you are done experimenting and picking the best node name :) you can start polkadot as daemon, exposes the polkadot ports and mount a volume that will keep your blockchain data locally:

if you want to connect to rpc port 9933, then must add polkadot startup parameter: `--rpc-external`. if you want to connect to rpc port 9933, then must add polkadot startup parameter: `--rpc-external`.
**Note:** The `--chain alex` argument is important and you need to add it to the command line. If you are running older node versions (pre 0.3) you don't need it. **Note:** The `--chain westend` argument is important and you need to add it to the command line.
