Thank you for covering for me! I only just saw the reply comment. In addition to that you will need -w /app to change the working directory.

For completeness for anyone else reading,

  • -v mounts the volume /app to your current path (pwd gets your current path)
  • -p maps the ports. I would also change this -p localhost:8900:8900 just so it's only accessible from localhost
  • node:12 specifies the container image. Docker hub hosts the iamge
  • sh -c "..." is the command to run on entry
