I am trying to figure out the solution for the above question. I tried the commands docker ps -a -f "label=redis" and docker ps -f "name=redis", but that didn't gave any output.

Any help?

I think you want the ancestor filter :

From the Docker Docs on ps:

ancestor - Filters containers which share a given image as an ancestor. Expressed as image-name[:<tag>], image id, or image@digest

$docker run -d --rm redis 
$ docker ps -f "ancestor=redis"
CONTAINER ID        IMAGE               COMMAND                  CREATED             STATUS              PORTS               NAMES
c4cf36467d63        redis               "docker-entrypoint.s…"   16 seconds ago      Up 15 seconds       6379/tcp            elated_yonath
