Look at where the volume is mounted in the container with docker inspect glance_api.  It's likely mapped to that location in the container from docker volume.

Subject: Glance folder to store images

CAUTION: This email originates from outside THG

I noticied in the glance configuration file after deploying openstack that  filesystem_store_datadir=/var/lib/glance/images/ however, upon inspection, I found that images weren't stored in that folder, instead all images where located in this folder /var/lib/docker/volumes/glance/_data/images/.
So I'm thinking if actually filesystem_store_datadir is not used to store images but maybe something else.
