Chrome returns status code 400 in docker container

I have protractor selenium tests running in a docker container. I have to test an insecure website. For one of the functions where API call is made to get some data back from backed chrome returns status code 400. I have added the following in my protractor config file:

chrome args ("--headless", "--no-sandbox", "--disable-dev-shm-usage")

directConnection: true,
disableChecks: true

Capabilities:

acceptInsecureCerts: true
acceptSslCerts: true

I have also added following in my .env file:

NODE_TLS_REJECT_UNAUTHORIZED=0

Below are the network logs I`ve gotten:

{
  method: 'Network.responseReceived',
  params: {
    frameId: '721A00F872D1255AA1DAE58D2DF5D75E',
    loaderId: '70EAE0F82B0AB6BDE6489BC26D77DA34',
    requestId: '117.239',
    response: {
      connectionId: 309,
      connectionReused: true,
      encodedDataLength: 123,
      fromDiskCache: false,
      fromPrefetchCache: false,
      fromServiceWorker: false,
      headers: [Object],
      mimeType: 'application/problem+json',
      protocol: 'h2',
      remoteIPAddress: 'remote ip',
      remotePort: 443,
      securityDetails: [Object],
      securityState: 'insecure',
      status: 400,
      statusText: '',
      timing: [Object],
      url: 'https://api call link'
    },
    timestamp: 15184.562748,
    type: 'XHR'
  }
}
{
  method: 'Network.dataReceived',
  params: {
    dataLength: 185,
    encodedDataLength: 0,
    requestId: '117.239',
    timestamp: 15184.562954
  }
}
{
  method: 'Network.dataReceived',
  params: {
    dataLength: 0,
    encodedDataLength: 203,
    requestId: '117.239',
    timestamp: 15184.563471
  }
}
{
  method: 'Network.loadingFinished',
  params: {
    encodedDataLength: 326,
    requestId: '117.239',
    shouldReportCorbBlocking: false,
    timestamp: 15184.552973
  }
}

To be noted, that when run locally outside of docker container this function works as expected and API call returns with status code: 200

P.S. Running it in Zelenium has the same results as locally in docker.
