Docker compose command failed and build failed returns non-zero: 2

For a schoolproject I need to load a localhost/db(mssql) container with connection in docker. On my windows machine it works perfectly but when I follow the same procedures on my Mac I get the errors shown below.

I got the error when I reopened a git cloned files (with docker-compose.yml and dockerfile) in a container (via vs code) but when I do, I get an error that the service ‘’ failed to build and returned a non-zero code of 2. after that I get a fail on docker-compose see linked below the full message

ERROR: Service 'webserver' failed to build : The command '/bin/sh -c /root/' returned a non-zero code: 2
[13240 ms] Command failed: docker-compose --project-name webtech-is-env -f /Users/martijn/Documents/Development/webtech-is-env/docker-compose.yml up -d --build
