AS2 Instance an MC from inside another MC to root

I’d like to be able to instance an MC that is within another MC to the stage. I understand how to duplicate things in the same path and how to attach from the library. However, for the unique situation that I have in my project I’d like to instance from inside a MC to the root.

Pseudo example:

contatiner1 and projectile1 are MCs
container1 parent is the root
projectile1 is inside container1
Create an instance on the root of projectile1

Is this possible?
