What's the mysqld error you're getting ?
I'd guess it's something about starting mysqld as root and not specifying the --user (https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/server-options.html#option_mysqld_user) option, right ?

Can you please check your mysqld error log ?

If that's the case then you need to add that option or not run mysqld as root.

I'd suggest not running mysqld as root. Please review https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/security-against-attack.html as to why.
