Using a jib for maven but non-Java application

I am in the process of creating a project and use Jib to create containers and push them to ECR. It is a multi-module maven project which has 3 sub-modules, 2 of them are standard java spring-boot project which is woking fine with Jib and the other one is an npm project which build using mvn. Here is the pom for it.

Spotify one is the way previously we did it and now we are moving to Jib. But I am getting sollowing issue for this app build,

    [ERROR] Failed to execute goal com.google.cloud.tools:jib-maven-plugin:2.7.1:build (default-cli) on project my-search-frontend: Obtaining project build output files failed; make sure you have compiled your project before trying to build the image. 
(Did you accidentally run "mvn clean jib:build" instead of "mvn clean compile jib:build"?): /home/cyrex/Documents/Sourcecode/my-search/my-search-frontend/target/classes -> [Help 1]
