Can't launch Elasticsearch

My JAVA_HOME code in .profile

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.11.0-openjdk-amd64
export PATH=$JAVA_HOME/bin:$PATH

And when I try to launch:

[elasticsearch-7.11.1] ./bin/elasticsearch Exception in thread "main" java.lang.RuntimeException: starting java failed with [1] output: [0.001s][error][logging] Error opening log file 'logs/gc.log': Permission denied [0.001s][error][logging] Initialization of output 'file=logs/gc.log' using options 'filecount=32,filesize=64m' failed. error: Could not rename log file 'logs/gc.log' to 'logs/gc.log.01' (Permission denied).

Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit. at at at at at [elasticsearch-7.11.1]

I did sudo chmod 777 on the Java home directory.
