As Daan said in the comments is hard for us to discover what is wrong with the logs you provided.

It looks that the polkadot-parachain starts correctly, but how are you running the relay chain? Here you can see how to use your docker images with Zombienet to run all your testing environment (Relay-chain + parachain): Zombienet: Substrate-Parachain-Template ... How to write the Dockerfile?

I also recommend to check the basic tutorials in the Substrate docs: Prepare a local relay chain or how to use Zombienet to set up all your testing environment: Set up a parachain test network. And finally you can check some examples of docker scripts in the cumulus (parachain) repository.
