Is it possible to start using a Nominatim db while it's being built?

I’m building the full db on my Linux server (on a docker container with a local mount), but it’s very slow (it’s at the “Way” step, slowly moving at 0.018k/s).

As the first step is already done, which seems to be the places, is it possible to already use the db in another container? I’m only interested in getting lat/long from a text search at the moment.
