Basically I was getting error because Docker Desktop could not reach the internet.

Got to this conclusion after running below command from Run your first Windows container which also gave same error message.

docker pull mcr.microsoft.com/windows/nanoserver:ltsc2022

Resolve the issue by setting InterfaceMetric lowest to 'Wi-Fi' in Network connection by below commands as mentioned in https://github.com/docker/for-win/issues/2760#issuecomment-430889666

Get-NetIPInterface -AddressFamily IPv4 | Sort-Object -Property InterfaceMetric -Descending

Set-NetIPInterface -InterfaceAlias 'Wi-Fi' -InterfaceMetric 1
  1. Try out WAIT_HOSTS option where you can add the list of services that the concerned service depends on in the docker-compose.yml. This is added in the docker compose file within the environment section and this helps with fixing the issue.

    When docker-compose is started (or Kubernetes or docker stack or whatever), your application will be started only when all the pairs host:port in the WAIT_HOSTS variable are available. The WAIT_HOSTS environment variable is not mandatory, if not declared, the script executes without waiting.

    To make your docker application container wait for multiple hosts, the environment variable can be specified as for example WAIT_HOSTS=mssql:14330, xconnect: 8081

  2. Quit Docker Desktop and then run it again.

Hope it helps!
