no it will not work that way imho

the only way to use .local is by ip address and the problem you will have is as your server is behind the firewall using vpn all the web visitors will need vpn running to see the page

you will need a web server in the dmz to do what you need and if you don't get a domain name and then point the domain name to the ip address in dns and then its not really on the internet as you will not be able to google it
