Facing a MySQL connection issue while Magento2 setup with docker at local

I have followed the steps mentioned in the existing project in the below link

markshust/docker-magento: Mark Shust's Docker Configuration for Magento (github.com)


I am not able to dump my SQL backup and when I connect bin/mysql, it connected perfectly fine but SQL queries are not working. it's not display anything even after multiple hits on the entering button.

Mysql connection not established I guess, so please help me to resolve this error and also find the attached screens for reference.

Note: I am able to setup default Magento perfectly and no issues are faced.

Just noticed this message!

You can take a MySQL dump by running:

bin/mysqldump > ~/Sites/yoursite/magento.sql

Regarding bin/mysql, that should work out of the box. Perhaps there was a bug when you tested it. I just ran it and it executed the SQL immediately:
