rewrite outside root

My current Apache setup has a rewrite in place to search the DocumentRoot at
'/var/www/' and if a file doesn't exist it looks in
'/var/www/common'. All attempts to duplicate this is Nginx result in
'var/www/common' being appended to my root directory. Is it possible to
rewrite outside the root in Nginx?
