We use the singularity containers. Docker is a no go due to it's insecure design and I also refrain from using Docker images, since I don't know how they were built.
But we have a great success with singularity definition files.
I normally would use Debian as the base system and build the image with the software(s) I need in order to run the image later on HPC.

Nextflow and snakemake also support singularity out of box AFAIK.

Best regards,
