Where does it exist?
On your local machine running Guix?
Have you tried to build a Dockerfile containing:
    FROM x237net/alpine-guix
    RUN guix pull
on any other machine not running Guix?

I suspect it will fail because "x237net/alpine-guix" is not build the
way you expect.

If it is what I am thinking of, the 'x237net/guixsd ' container works
on any machine running Guix.
But, it will fail otherwise.

I suspect that this image you successfully built will not work on any
machine not running Guix.

Hope that helps,
