Firebase is useful for MVP or side projects, not for a enterprise-commercial projects.
Firebase give us a easy cheap and shortcut path for api/database BUT beware for later about abstraction layer! Still using FB only for small projects only with minimal usage.
Not really free while you need Cloud Function where its very usefull !

If you want to master more advanced stuff by yourself, use GCP (Google Cloud Platform). Alot more fun ;)

API and database is not really hard to create and, just learn to use Node.JS + MySQL , they are free except the webhost like DigitalOcean or Linode.
