Elasticsearch Docker: flood stage disk watermark [95%] exceeded

I have a similar issue to the one posted here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/50609417/elasticsearch-error-cluster-block-exception-forbidden-12-index-read-only-all

I'm running Elasticsearch and Kibana with docker-compose on a big cluster with lots of free space. Still I get the same warning: flood stage disk watermark [95%] exceeded

Is there a way to have these settings saved in the docker environment, so that I don't need to manually set it with curl each time? I already had these settings in the elasticsearch.yml file:

cluster.routing.allocation.disk.watermark.flood_stage: 15gb
cluster.routing.allocation.disk.watermark.low: 30gb
cluster.routing.allocation.disk.watermark.high: 20gb

But that didn't change anything.

Plus: My Kibana doesn't run like it should.
It tells me:

Another Kibana instance appears to be migrating the index. Waiting for that migration to complete.
I already tried other approaches I found online, but they didn't help much.

Any help is much appreciated.
