Container can't find/read mounted volume

Hi, I#m pretty new on docker and tried to install an OAuth-Server (Authelia). But the container can’t use the binded volumes/configuration. I’m already in contact with the team, but they can not find any errors sor far. The configuration, the way I mount the volume, the folder structure and permissions are fine. But when I start the container with docker compose, authelia can’t read the configuration or can’t even find them. I have tested it on two servers and both give the same error. Maybe someone here has experinced an similiar error already and can give some advise. Would be great.

This is the docker-compose.yml

version: '3.7'
services:
  authelia:
    image: authelia/authelia
    container_name: authelia
    restart: unless-stopped
