WordPress Docker "Error establishing a database connection"

I have set up a server to host multiple websites according to this tutorial: https://blog.ssdnodes.com/blog/host-multiple-ssl-websites-docker-nginx/

I have also configured a docker-compose.yml for wordpress like they did in example 2 in the same tutorial. But when I open the website, I get an “Error establishing a database connection” Error. I remember doing this a few months back with everything working fine, but I cant remember what I did differently.

This is the error message I receive (multiple times) after typing docker-compose up

wp_test           | MySQL Connection Error: (1045) Access denied for user 'wordpress'@'' (using password: YES)
wp_test_db        | 2020-02-23T21:00:45.772510Z 11 [Note] Access denied for user 'wordpress'@'' (using password: YES)

My docker-compose.yml file looks like this:

version: "3"

     image: mysql:5.7
        - db_data:/var/lib/mysql
     restart: always
        MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD: somewordpress
        MYSQL_DATABASE: wordpress
        MYSQL_USER: wordpress
        MYSQL_PASSWORD: wordpress
     container_name: wp_test_db

        - db_node_domain
     image: wordpress:latest
        - 80
     restart: always
        VIRTUAL_HOST: blog.example.com
        LETSENCRYPT_HOST: blog.example.com
        LETSENCRYPT_EMAIL: [email protected]
        WORDPRESS_DB_HOST: db_node_domain:3306
        WORDPRESS_DB_USER: wordpress
        WORDPRESS_DB_PASSWORD: wordpress
     container_name: wp_test

      name: nginx-proxy

I have tried to stop and start the the image, as suggested here: https://www.reddit.com/r/docker/comments/ahzv5d/wordpress_cant_connect_to_mysql/

I have also tried another wordpress docker-config.yml and added the nginx paramaters myselve, but got the same error message https://docs.docker.com/compose/wordpress/

I got new error messages
