This is similar to Bug#81257, and fails for the same reason.
When the container starts, the initialization scripts issues the command
DELETE FROM mysql.user where user != 'mysql.sys';

This is fine unless you install the Xplugin at the same time:

docker run --name mybox  -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=secret -\
   d mysql/mysql-server --plugin-load=mysqlx:mysqlx.so

The plugin is installed, but the account mysqlxsys is deleted (https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/document-store-setting-up.html)

Note: there is a timing issue. Sometimes, depending on the speed of the host, the operation succeeds, as the existing users are deleted before the new user is created. 

How to repeat:

docker run --name mybox  -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=secret -\
   d mysql/mysql-server --plugin-load=mysqlx:mysqlx.so

Try connecting with mysqlsh

Suggested fix:

Change the statement to:
DELETE FROM mysql.user where user not in ( 'mysql.sys', 'mysqlxsys' );
