Setting up a nas on proxmox

This is my first time setting up a home server and I have a few questions on how exactly I should set it up.

 

I have 2 1tb raid one ssds meant to store the vm os's and have have 4x4tb hdds mean to store all of my files.

I want to setup a samba file server but not sure the best way to go about it, I have a few docker containers and applications I want to access this file share such as plex, mayan edms and a few others so how should I set it up to allow it to access the same files. Should i install samba on the root proxmox instance? or should i put it all into a vm and do it from there.

If you want to use ZFS, you could create your storage on Proxmox through the terminal using ZFS, and create say a RAIDZ-1 with the 4x4TB drives. 

Then you install an LXC container for your samba.
