Web interface through nginx reverse proxy not showing up

My goal here is to run multiple web servers off proxmox and a reverse proxy is great as it routes traftic to different web servers by the domain name.

I tried following a combination of a few guides:


but to no avail.

Connecting to http, nginx is able to redirect http traffic to https. However when it redirects to https, it doesn't connect to the web interface.

Am I missing a firewall setting (on proxmox) to allow https traffic through?

My network setup is pretty simple. I have a router connected to WAN and it runs a DHCP server, giving an internal ip to my proxmox server. I have portforwarded both http and https ports for it.
Please share your configuration, as we can't say really much without checking if the config is correct.
