Cant get cron to run without being root

After changing my php-fpm service to run as a regular user instead of root, I can’t get my cron to run anymore.

Heres my docker-compose.yml:

version: "3.8"
  # Application
      context: ./docker/services/app
      dockerfile: app.dockerfile
    working_dir: /var/www
    user: "1000:1000"
      - ./src:/var/www
      - network

And from my dockerfile:

FROM php:8.1-fpm

WORKDIR /var/www

# Install Cron
RUN apt-get update && apt-get install -y cron
RUN echo "* * * * * root php /var/www/artisan schedule:run >> /var/log/cron.log 2>&1" >> /etc/crontab
RUN touch /var/log/cron.log

CMD bash -c "cron && php-fpm"

This worked perfectly before adding the user: “1000:1000” to my docker-compose.yml, but now the service just crashes with the following error:

2023-04-13 12:43:00 bash: line 1: cron: command not found

Any idea what might cause this?
