Adding Tomas into CC, he maintains nodejs and has better knowledge what 
it means to run nodejs app.

My nodejs-unexperienced thought would be you can create a new docker 
image, that will use `FROM: nodejs-010-rhel7` and:
* add the app code somewhere into the image (e.g. into /opt/app-root/app)
* changing CMD to run your application on pure `docker run`

Or, theoretically, you don't have to create a new layer (image), just 
use volume mounting to get your app into the container. It would mean to 
run the image this way:

#> docker run -v /your/app:/opt/app-root/app nodej-010-rhel7 

But I may be also wrong about how it is the best to do it. Or whether 
this way is something we should or shouldn't recommend.

Sharing also to the ML, maybe others might have different opinions/ideas 
or at least issues.
