If you want this network to be self contained and not effect your existing network, use a vSwitch with no network cards attached, and just use a single Portgroup to connect the VMs.

and a very good document from Cisco comparing with IPv4 and explaining threats and considerations:

all the devices need to be v6 like for instance your physical switches as ip v6 cannot use ip v4 but ip v4 can be encalsulated in ip v6
