How to run eclipse-mosquitto from Docker Hub?

I was trying to run eclipse-mosquitto from DockerHub but the deploy it’s failling…

[2022-11-03 13:35:34] 1667482534: mosquitto version 2.0.15 starting
[2022-11-03 13:35:34] 1667482534: Config loaded from /mosquitto/config/mosquitto.conf.
[2022-11-03 13:35:34] 1667482534: Starting in local only mode. Connections will only be possible from clients running on this machine.
[2022-11-03 13:35:34] 1667482534: Create a configuration file which defines a listener to allow remote access.
[2022-11-03 13:35:34] 1667482534: For more details see
[2022-11-03 13:35:34] 1667482534: Opening ipv4 listen socket on port 1883.
[2022-11-03 13:35:34] 1667482534: Opening ipv6 listen socket on port 1883.
[2022-11-03 13:35:34] 1667482534: mosquitto version 2.0.15 running

Also… how can I run the container with specific ports… like this:

docker run -it -p 1883:1883 -p 9001:9001 mqtt
