The issue described is misleading.
[yes, the “CA root” is not trusted and a problem - but NOT as you would think]

The site isn’t using the correct cert.
It is using a self-signed cert for:
The “CA root” for the self-signed cert is itself.
So, yes, that “CA root” will never be trusted.
But that can’t be fixed.
The “fix” is to use the correct signed cert.

The --standalone parameter will only get the cert.
It is then up to you to use the cert.

If you issue:
certbot certificates
you can see what certs you have.

so i must do it without --standalone

because i have the webserver in a docker out of the docker there is nothing

If the web server and certbot are in the same docker instance, then you can treat it like you would any other system with certbot and a web server:
Cerbot gets and renews the certs.
The web server hosts sites (via HTTP and/or HTTPS).

So, you already have two good certs.
Now, do you have the two corresponding HTTP sites to enable with TLS(HTTPS)?

maybe the problem is i am doin certbot out of the docker

I don’t see how you could (unless you have multiple IPs or shutdown the first container while getting the certs).
If I read that correctly, the first container has both port 80 and port 443.

Anywho, if they are on separate systems, then you will need to either:

  • find a common “shared” path for them to both reach the cert files.
  • move the certbot program function into the container that has the web server.
