Can't change bridge subnet or create network on Docker

I would like to build a small infrastructure entirely under Linux. For the LDAP and file server part I would like to set up a Docker server that will host the OpenLDAP and Owncloud containers. I would like to have a network for my Docker server and its containers.
This will give :
Srv_Docker :
OpenLDAP :
Owncloud :

It is impossible to create a network with the addressing because it seems that there is already a network with this addressing.
Creating a network with subnet
docker network create --subnet --gateway test Error response from daemon: Pool overlaps with other one on this address space

Network listing
Docker network ls NETWORK ID NAME DRIVER SCOPE 6769af814ca4 bridge bridge local 91992f85bf6d host host local 3d8f8aeefaf6 none null local

Bridge network display
docker inspect bridge : "Subnet": "", "Gateway": ""

Do you have any idea how I could have the IP & on my containers while having the address on my Docker host?
Thank you very much.
