Unable to create a running container for mysql:latest image from Docker Hub

Hi all, would like to ask for help. I am attempting to run mysql:latest image on Azure Container Instance. I am not modifying anything and simply pulling the image from the public docker registry. However, my container fails to start. I would kindly appreciate any help - I am a beginner here.

This is my log file.
