The nova show command is showing power state : 1, state : active and allocated public and private ips.

Still it is showing ssh no route to host error.

If this is your first time working with Openstack, a common problem is overlooking security groups. Security groups define what essentially ends up being firewall rules for your tenant. By default openstack creates tenants with very restrictive security groups, allow everything out but allow nothing in unless it's from VMs in the same tenant.

To allow ssh from an external (public) IP you would need to add an ingress rule to allow SSH traffic.
