Docker swarm doesn’t build from Dockerfile correctly

Im using docker swarm with Docker version 19.03.3 engine.

I have a problem with psql build, it seems like Dockerfile does run correctly and i do push the new service to registry, but when container is up i discover that all COPY files are missing and psql extension “Postgis” that i install on Dockerfile is not installed.

I dont see any errors and that is why i dont know what is the issue.


FROM postgres
RUN apt-get update -y
RUN apt-get install -y postgis
COPY cluster/ /docker-entrypoint-initdb.d/

swarm yml file:

                build: docker-compose.d/postgres
                restart: 'always'
                        - PG_MAX_WAL_SENDERS=8
                        - PG_WAL_KEEP_SEGMENTS=8
                        - PGDATA=/var/lib/postgresql/data/pgdata
                        - POSTGRES_USER=USER
                        - POSTGRES_PASSWORD=password
                        - /db_data:/var/lib/postgresql/data'
                       - node.role==manager


docker service create --name=registry --publish published=5000,target=5000 registry
overall progress: 1 out of 1 tasks
1/1: running
verify: Service converged

docker-compose build --no-cache db #if i dont use --no-cache it doesnt rebuild service

Successfully built f6413978c21c

docker-compose push db
Pushing db (
The push refers to repository []

docker stack deploy base --compose-file docker-compose.swarm.yml

I see service is build :

docker service ls
lobelr1vzj8l        base_db                replicated          1/1       

container logs :

docker service ps --no-trunc base_db

docker service logs base_db
    psql:/docker-entrypoint-initdb.d/postgres.sql:1: ERROR:  could not open extension control file "/usr/share/postgresql/12/extension/postgis.control": No such file or directory

Problem is The container doesn’t really build with this command in Dockerfile
“RUN apt-get install -y postgis”

If i go to the container and run commands manually it works and also shows like extension was never installed before.

Why is that?
