Oh, my bad english, It seems I need to explain my question more carefully.

In fact, I mean:

There are some sub-conf-file asid from a main-conf-file, when nginx start, it 
will load the main-conf-file at first.
When nginx is running, if it gets any requests and matchs a sub-conf-file by 
some rules, the main process will load this sub-conf-file to application 

Anyway, thank you all. :)
