Still trying to learn docker. I am mounting a Postgres image using docker-compose :

version: '3.7'
        image: postgres:12
        - 5432:5432
        - POSTGRES_DB=postgres
        - POSTGRES_PASSWORD=password
        - POSTGRES_USER=postgres

After running it sucessfully I run docker ps and there is no new container. But if I use postgres:11 it creates the container correctly.

Also if I do docker run -d postgres:latest it works.

What is causing this error ? I do not understand

    Works for me with :12 and :latest (they are the very same image). When the container starts there are progress messages. If you don't see them in the terminal you can retrieve them with docker logs postgres-container. – xenoid Feb 4 at 22:05
