Alternatively instead set up everything you can just use Ubuntu image with LEMP: droplets> destroy> rebuild> choose Ubuntu LEMP > REBUILD

However I face problem that UFW firewall NOT WORKING AT ALL for ubuntu images 16 (with docker) and 17 :

If you found some solution can you test that UFW really works in your case and give me some info?

Alternative2> Instead of UFW you can use Network Firewall accesed by diitalocean web panel
