How to set permissions on boot for a Volume

I’ve managed to set up a volume and attached it to my droplet in the storage folder of my project. On boot this is done by fstab by the following line.

/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-0DOVolumevolume-ams3-01 /path/to/mount-point ext4 defaults,nofail,discard 0 0

However after every reboot I need to set the permissions by performing:

sudo chown -R forge:forge /path/to/mount-point

Otherwise the forge user has no permissions on the volume. Can this be automated and is there a best practice for this?

Thanks in advance.
