    restart: unless-stopped
      - db
      SONAR_JDBC_URL: jdbc:postgresql://db:5432/sonar
      - sonarqube_data:/opt/sonarqube/data
      - sonarqube_extensions:/opt/sonarqube/extensions
      - sonarqube_logs:/opt/sonarqube/logs
      - "9000:9000"
    image: postgres:12
    restart: unless-stopped
      POSTGRES_USER: sonar
      - postgresql:/var/lib/postgresql
      - postgresql_data:/var/lib/postgresql/data

Save the file by entering :wq!

Now execute the compose file using Docker compose command:
sudo docker-compose up -d 

Make sure SonarQube is up and running by checking the logs
