python-3.6.0b2-embed-amd64.zip will load the interpreter as is easy to install.
The Python Embedded Distribution documentation mentions needing ucrtbase.dll,
which is already installed on Nano Server.
One small pain point is that ctrl-z seems to exit/suspend the docker container
and drop you back to the host. Under the normal, non-embedded python, you can
just run exit() to quit the interpreter. Since this option is not available
under the embedded version, you have to import sys; sys.exit() to quit the
interpreter under Nano Server. Also, there is no pip.exe.
Thank you for the information regarding MSI which I was not aware of. Upon
further consideration, I believe this issue can be closed because the embedded
distribution works on Nano Server.
