My request

<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope" xmlns:soap1="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/">
         <soap1:listName>Container Inspection Report</soap1:listName>
            <FieldRef Name="ID" />
            <FieldRef Name="Title" />

the response

<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
            <soap:Text xml:lang="en">Exception of type 'Microsoft.SharePoint.SoapServer.SoapServerException' was thrown.</soap:Text>
            <errorstring xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/sharepoint/soap/">Element &lt;ViewFields> of parameter viewFields is missing or invalid.</errorstring>

second question how can I know my authentication NTLM?

Question 1:

When using SharePoint Online, you should be using REST, not SOAP. REST is more modern and supports authentication scenarios such as those required by SharePoint Online, that is: claims-based authentication. Furthermore it’s responses are returned as JSON objects which do not carry the excessive overhead of XML, and therefore tend to return quicker responses.

Regarding your second question:

There is absolutely no NTLM authentication in SharePoint online. NTLM = NT LAN Manager

LAN as in Local Area Network.

SharePoint Online uses claims-based authentication. See here for description of the difference
