    You are not running docker in a terminal, so you should remove -t from -it:

    sudo docker exec -i 5570dc09b58 bash

    See a more detailed answer here.

    Scripts may be forced to run in interactive mode with the -i option or with a #!/bin/bash -i header.

    So adding shebang to the script with -i option should work:

    #!/bin/bash -i
    docker exec -it ed3d9e46b8ee date

    Run the script as usual:

    chmod +x
    sudo ./
