Cannot access a port remotely but it works locally

I want to access to 9000 port remotely.
This is the result for "sudo netstat -ntulp"

Active Internet connections (only servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name
tcp 0 0* LISTEN 986/mongod

tcp 0 0* LISTEN 982/sshd

tcp6 0 0 :::9000 :::* LISTEN 4978/docker-proxy
tcp6 0 0 :::12201 :::* LISTEN 4960/docker-proxy
tcp6 0 0 :::22 :::* LISTEN 982/sshd

udp6 0 0 :::12201 :::* 4970/docker-proxy

So the 9000 port should be accessible remotely.
It works locally (both http://localhost:9000 and http://[ip-address]:9000) but when I try to connect remotely (http://[ip-address]:9000) it doesn't work.
Also ufw is disabled.

Can anyone help?
