I am trying to set up a privatte blockchain on my local system and while setting up the genesis block, I am receiving the following error -

Fatal: Failed to read genesis file: open /Ethereum/conf/genesis.json: no such file or directory

Of course, the file is there and I have set up the genesis config properly. The command I am running is -

docker run -it --rm --name geth -u $(id -u $USER):$(id -g $USER) -v /Ethereum:/root ethereum/client-go:alltools-v1.7.3 geth --datadir /Ethereum/data/ init /Ethereum/conf/genesis.json

I think this error happens due to docker not configured properly, because command outside of docker seems to be working fine
