Your docker host needs to have the same user and id as you specify in docker-compose.yml (docker-compose.yml#L6. Once you fix that, remove all containers and recreate them. This will fix the errors.

Hi @sylvainFish,

I can confirm I just followed the tutorial and managed to run the command you mentioned without a problem. Unfortunately, I can’t seem an exact reason behind the experienced issue. What I’ll recommend is just trying to follow the tutorial step by step from the beginning.
