see into error.log and access.log from nginx and apache for cause.
if not help with default loglevel - set loglevel to info or debug.

HEAD requests in nginx enabled by default.

what you missing - you can know from logfiles of http://www.staging.myler.nl/

PS looks like this is problem with your backend, this is not nginx issue:

> lwp-request -m HEAD -U -s -S -e http://staging.myler.nl/
HEAD http://www.myler.nl/web/persoon/staging
User-Agent: lwp-request/2.08

HEAD http://staging.myler.nl/ --> 302 Found
