Bootstrap4 problem : proper column structure inside and outside a container

So i'm working on a task and can't seem to find a proper solution to my problem. I've already made a design inside photoshop to show what I want to create : Photoshop Design.

So basicly I want to have the main part inside a container (including: a paragraph at the left and an image of an icon next to an h1-title [at the right]) --> This all needs to be inside a responsive container.

My question is : how can I create a "black box" or "div" , at the left side next to the container , without it being placed above the container with the main content in, and still be responsive?

I've been struggling the last couple of days with this problem I did already try almost everything (the flex-properties in bootstrap, the col-systems in bootstrap, container inside a fluid container,...) but can't find a way to combine the container-fluid with a casual container... If anyone could help me out, it would definitely help me out a lot! Thanks in advance!

(ps: I don't post the code because everything I tried didn't work out.) Here is an example of how i want the divs to look like : example image

HTML :

    <div class="container-fluid h-50" id="outerContainer">
  <div class="container h-100" id="innerContainer">
    <div class="row">
      <div class="col">
        <p>

      <div class="col text-center">
        <img src="/images/icons/lightbulb.svg" id="iconScale" class="img-fluid" alt="concept icon" />
      </div>
      <div class="col">
        <h2>
          CONCEPT
        </h2>
      </div>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>

CSS :

html,
body{
  height: 100%;
}

#innerContainer{
  background-color: black;
}

#outerContainer{
  background-color: black;
}

#iconScale{
  max-width: 100px;
}

h2{
  color: #d8a55d;
  font-size: 4rem;
}

p{
  color: white;
}

        width: 100%;
        outline: thin solid black;
        position: relative;
        background: white;
    }
    
    .background-outside::before {
        height: 100%;
        content: ' ';
        position: absolute;
