There's a fuller discussion of the issue -- in the context of apache --
If you really really can't adjust the backend application, then you'll
want something like apache's mod_proxy_html (or mod_substitute, or
mod_sed, but they will leave lots of the fiddly details up to you to
nginx_substitutions_filter at http://wiki.nginx.org/NginxHttpSubsModule
looks like the closest starting point to me; but you pretty much have to
parse the html and css to find things that end browser will consider a
url, and change all of them and only them. Parsing with regexes isn't fun.
Possibly someone has already done the work of creating an nginx version
of mod_proxy_html and then put it somewhere hidden from $SEARCH_ENGINE;
more likely everyone just configures the backend application to avoid
the need to adjust.
All the best,
