How do we browse Nutanix containers from command line to check what is contained in it.

Thanks every one for the answers. I am able to access the files in AHV containers now,
@Amit_kumar I expect you’re running AHV, since ESXi and Hyper-V readily present container contents. AHV doesn’t manage VM files in quite the same way. In addition to the suggestions above, you can also use the Filesystem Whitelist function to make containers accessible/mountable using NFS or SMB from a client system. After doing this, you can browse containers from a client machine the same as you would any other NFS mount or mapped drive.
Most of the files are named with their vmdisk UUID. Is there something specific you wanted to locate?
Also you can try this guide:
AOS 5.5 Storage Container
you can follow the KB :
