We obtain the spectrum of bound states for modified Pöschl-Teller and square-potential wells in the nonlinear Schrödinger equation. For a fixed norm of bound states, the spectrum for both potentials turns out to consist of a finite number of multinode localized states. Soliton scattering by these two potentials confirmed the existence of the localized states which form as trapped modes. Critical speed for quantum reflection was calculated using the energies of the trapped modes.
