docker compose rm

Removes stopped service containers


docker compose rm [OPTIONS] [SERVICE...]


Removes stopped service containers.

By default, anonymous volumes attached to containers are not removed. You can override this with -v. To list all volumes, use docker volume ls.

Any data which is not in a volume is lost.

Running the command with no options also removes one-off containers created by docker compose run:

$ docker compose rm
Going to remove djangoquickstart_web_run_1
Are you sure? [yN] y
Removing djangoquickstart_web_run_1 ... done


--all-aDeprecated - no effect
--force-fDon't ask to confirm removal
--stop-sStop the containers, if required, before removing
--volumes-vRemove any anonymous volumes attached to containers
