its because index.php is a real file. It never gets passed off to @www. try_files is for testing real files on the filesystem. And returns that url if it is successful. If it is unsuccesful it is passed off to @www.

from the wiki
might try this format
location /wordpress {
  try_files $uri $uri/ /wordpress/index.php?q=$uri&args;

and then have your normal php location block for fastcgi settings.
