I have had problems with LXC and veth inside a vmware ESX VM. Routing was
not possible. I solved this problem by configuring

lxc.network.type = phys
lxc.network.link  = eth3
lxc.network.name  = eth3

Where eth3 is a virtual ESX interface.
I am not using VirtualBox, but perhaps you can create there also more
virtual ethernet devices,
