Hello,

What I would personally do is to create a Docker network and then assign names for each container. That way the containers will be able to communicate via that new Docker network and you can use their names as the hostnames for your application.

You can follow the steps on how to do that here:

In case that you are just getting started with Docker, I could suggest this free eBook here too:
