I can't set up a sqlite3 database. The error is Opening Database: Access Denied

I can't set up a sqlite3 database. The error is Opening Database: Access Denied.

I am working on ubuntu and the database is in a local folder.

what file permissions does that file have? do a chown on the file and also a chmod 666 to it

File permissions are:
-rwxrwxrwx metabase metabase db2.sqlite.3

I did a chown and a chmod and it didn't work.

interesting, can you open the same with a normal sql client?
