Can you use the same DB for Jira and Bitbucket?

I have JIRA setup pointing to an external vm MySQL DB instance. Can I use the same MySQL DB instance for Bitbucket or does it have to be another DB on the same MySQL instance? Or do I have to use a completely separate instance? What's best practice?

Atlassian doesn't recommend using MySQL for Bitbucket, found here:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucketserver/connecting-bitbucket-server-to-an-external-database-776640378.html

Any reasons why?

Christian, I have done this both ways.  In one case we ran all the Atlassian DBs in single postgres instance and currently we run them all separately and local to the server.  Both work without issue.

Thanks Pete, will give this a try.
