If you really want to run nginx on both machines, then you need to set 
up a normal install in the jail machine, and a reverse proxy 
configuration on the firewall.

If you can serve all your content from the "jail" version, then you 
don't need the version on the firewall.  Simply port forward port 80 to 
the port and ip of the "jail" machine.  I think you only need to forward 
TCP. If you are using https then you will need to forward that port also.
