we have a database running which contains data, but it does not show up in MongoDB Compass (weirdly it sometimes shows up after restarting the database container in docker). Would anyone have an idea, why this is occuring?
As a little background: A colleague built a little image/audio presentation tool running locally, with a server, a client and a database. The tool is accessed through the browser via localhost:8080, with database at 27017. Everything is run via docker and works fine. The data is visible and useable within the tool, however the database does not show up whe I connect to it via Compass on localhost 27017, compass only shows admin, config and local. Once in a while our database, hosting the images and audio files does show up and is accessible. I however cannot explain how this came about other than restarting the containers in docker.
As a disclosure on the side, I am just the user of the tool and not very much into the IT details and quite a beginner in terms of coding :). Please let me know if any further details are needed. Thank you in advance for your advice!
P.S. The command show dbs as well only returns admin, config and local.
