I am trying to run a django app in a docker container with

The socket is being created, but then when I try and connect to the
site it fails with this nginx error:

2017/08/19 16:56:29 [crit] 1251#1251: *1 connect() to
unix:///opt/django/CAPgraph/app.sock failed (13: Permission denied)
while connecting to upstream, client:, server: , request:
"GET / HTTP/1.1", upstream:
"uwsgi://unix:///opt/django/CAPgraph/app.sock:", host:

local dir in the vagrant/Virtual Box VM

How can I debug this further?
