Invalid argument received when running chown in a Linux namespace

ao flag

After running something like this:

unshare -rUm
mkdir opt
mount --bind opt /opt
touch /opt/test
chown 1000:1000 /opt/test

I'm receiving this:

chown: changing ownership of '/opt/test': Invalid argument

I don't understand why or how can I bypass this issue.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
