Unable to ping my localhost in ESXI host

I have configured EXSI host using NAT option (NAT gateway is 192.168.1.1) and ESXI host with 192.168.1.X series.

Vnet8 configuration below

Physical Address: ‎00-50-56-C0-00-08
DHCP Enabled: No
IPv4 Address: 192.168.1.1
IPv4 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

Local host network in 192.168.0.X series, I am able to ping the ESXI host from local host network but when I tried to ping the Local host network from ESXI host.. I am getting as failed
