Then configure Traefik label:

version: '3'
services:
	wordpress:
    	....
        labels:
            - 'traefik.enable=true'
            - 'traefik.http.routers.blog.rule=Host(`$SITE_URL`) && PathPrefix(`/blog`)'
            - 'traefik.http.routers.blog.entrypoints=https'
        ....
        
            - 'traefik.http.routers.blog.tls=true'
