How to install python on empty alpine container

  alpine, docker, python, shell

I need to install python on running container, based empty alpine image.
That is my run command:

docker run -it alpine:3.14 sh

And then I get a shell, like this:

/ # 

Then, i want to install python

/ # apt-get update -y
/ # apt-get install -y python

But I get this error:

sh: apt-get: not found

I try to install bash by those commands but it doesn’t work

/ # apk update

My question is: is it possible to install python on shell?

P.S: I must do it in the container and must use in empty alpine image

Thanks!!
