Gitlab-CI with Docker executor /usr/bin/bash: line 90: git: command not found

I have a local gitlab server and gitlab-ci runner with docker executor.

I want to use gitlab-ci to build (for the first stage) my maven project. Since I use buildnumber-maven-plugin I added a git service to my gitlab-ci.yml like this:

image: maven:latest

services:
  - alpine/git:latest

# Cache goes here
cache:
  paths:
    - .m2/repository
    - frontend-app/node_modules/

# ENV variables goes  here

# Before script goes here

# Stages definition goes here
stages:
  - build

# Build stage
build:
  stage: build
  before_script:
    - mvn --version
    - git --version
  script:
    - mvn clean install --settings .ci/settings.xml
  artifacts:
    paths:
      - backend-app/target/*.jar

But when git --version is executed I got command not found error. This is my complete gitlab ci console log:
