Docker src code will not update with volume mount

I am trying to mount my local directory to my web app volume running in docker. The file path in the inspect log is correct and when i run ‘docker-compose up --build’, the local directory is copied correctly but then will not change when I change any local files or files on the container.

My app is based off a tutorial that this works for but I am lost with what to do next.

docker inspect output:

 "Mounts": [
        {
            "Type": "bind",
            "Source": "/home/och/Documents/Software Projects/Carinfo/carinfo/src",
            "Destination": "/src",
            "Mode": "rw",
            "RW": true,
            "Propagation": "rprivate"

The local directory is correct but it still will not update.

I am running:
Docker version 19.03.8
docker-compose version 1.25.4
xUbuntu on VM VirtualBox
