Also, you can specify custom placement rules, see:

But Shawn's statement is the nub of what you're seeing, by default
multiple JVMs on the same physical machine are considered separate
Solr instances.

Also note that if you want to, you can specify a nodeSet when you
create the nodes, and in particular the special value EMPTY. That'll
create a collection with no replicas and you can ADDREPLICA to
precisely place each one if you require that level of control.
