Now, I am trying to introduce Docker to an existing Rails application by referring to the following article.
[Docker] Building a development environment with a Rails project under construction
An error occurred there and I could not solve it by myself, so I will ask you a question.

Create and edit the file referring to the above article, and put it in the terminal$docker-compose buildAfter hitting
$docker-compose run web rails db: createWhen I typed the command, the following error occurred.

Unknown MySQL server host'db' (-2)
Couldn't create'project_development' database. Please check your configuration.
rails aborted!
Mysql2 :: Error :: ConnectionError: Unknown MySQL server host'db' (-2)

What I tried

I tried to delete all Docker images by referring to the following article, but I got the same error.
[PF creation] MYSQL error when building Docker + Rails container

  • Answer # 1

    It seems that it was because mysql was not started before creating the database.
    I solved it with the following command.

    % sudo mysql.server restart
    % docker-compose run web rails db: create

  • Answer # 2

    host: The host name where MySQL is running
    So, localhost and ip should come, but what was db?

  • Answer # 3

    If you don't delete the container and run it again, it will probably succeed

    docker-compose runAfter that, MySQL is not started in time

    docker-compose runAfter executing
    Immediately check it with Docker Desktop's Dashboard etc.
    You can see that the Rails command was executed before the next MySQL log was printed:

    2020-10-07T12: 35: 28.981887Z 0 [Note] mysqld: ready for connections.

    depends_onStarts the dependent Docker container first,
    It does not determine that the internal service is in the started state
    To wait for thiswait-for-itAnd so on
