Ip address without port not working

I run a docker container for my application. This is the command I used to get it worked:

docker run --name spring-boot -p 8080:8080 --link my-mysql-db:mysql -d username/image-name:latest

My application is up and running. I can navigate my app like this: but it is not working if I type only without port number. How can I fix that?

Thank in advance!

Because port 80 is the port used for HTTP. You can change it or use a webserver and proxy the requests.
