This did the trick. $uri had /community as the first part but you are
right using
 try_files $uri $uri/ /community/index.php?qa-rewrite=$uri&$args;
forced it to use the correct php location and then in the application
removing /community from the $uri (which translates to
$_GET['qa-rewrite']) worked perfectly for me.

Thanks again.
