Splunk search head docker behind nginx reverse proxy - how to deactivate test basic http on startup?

my container starts behind nginx (web ssl deactivated), but then fails and restarts every minute:

FAILED - RETRYING: Test basic https endpoint (60 retries left).

since my nginx routes www.mysplunkserver.com:443/80 to container, :8000 is not routed for now.

Is there a way to  deactivate basic https endpoint test?

[settings]
enableSplunkWebSSL = 0
httpport = 8000
tools.proxy.on = true

The solution was that I changed the admin password inside Splunk, which was different from the SPLUNK_PASSWORD environment in the docker-compose file. This needs to be in sync:

    environment:
      - SPLUNK_START_ARGS=--accept-license
      - SPLUNK_PASSWORD=MustBeTheSameAsManuallyChangedAdminPassword
