Problem with ssl and glassfish

I am trying to use ssl in my server to make a secure connection with a server from one of our customers.
They sent us the certificate file (*.crt) and we are supposed to use it in our server.

I did not have idea about ssl and secure connections so I did some basic tutorials, I generated my keys using keytool and after
tested that loading https://localhost:8181. Everything seem working fine, but when I imported the customer certificate using keytool and I change
the name of the alias in my glassfish domain, https://localhost:8181 did not load again.

I checked with keytool -list and the certificate that I imported appears in the list with the other certificates that I created. Everything looks the same
but when I set the alias of that certificate in glassfish, https://localhost:8181 doesnt load.

Just to test I exported a crt file using one of the generated keys that was working. After that I imported the crt file and the https://localhost:8181 did not load again.
Then I think the problem is when I import the crt file, or maybe I am doing sth very stupid .

I have tried different parameters to import the crt file like:

keytool -import -file certificate.crt -alias cert

keytool -import -file certificate.crt -keystore keystore.jks -alias cert

keytool -import -v -trustcacerts -file certificate.crt -keystore keystore.jks -alias cert

Thanks for your help!!!
