Most often this question is asked when gzip is enabled on a 
backend host, and hence nginx sess gzipped content which it can't 
change.  Where you tried to disable gzip?  Correct thing to do is 
to disable gzip on a backend.  Alternatively, you may do

   proxy_set_header Accept-Encoding "";

on nginx side.  This will inform backend that content encodings 
aren't acceptable and will effectively disable gzip on a backend 
as well.
