How did you create your cloud - manually or with a deployment tool like Packstack or Devstack?

Do you have a route to 188.130.x.y when you ping?

Can the VM ping the router?

Is there connectivity to/from the VM that is directly connected to the provider network?

Can you share the output of openstack network show provider, and the Linuxbridge or Openvswitch agent config (or whatever other L2 agent you use)?

@Bernd Bausch it was created manually and yes I have a route when I ping from compute and controller node not from outside .. also when I ping from the created instance I reach the public assigned IP.

Can it be this one https://ask.openstack.org/en/question/127119/openstack-neutron-ovs-external-network-not-reachable/https://ask.openstack.org/en/question/127119/openstack-neutron-ovs-external-network-not-reachable/ (https://ask.openstack.org/en/question...)

That's easy to check by enabling promiscuous mode on the external Vswitch.
