If you are so super confident that everything is okay with the files then I would suggest you to do this.

Assume you have host1, host2, host3 and host4. The one not working is host4 while host1 to host3 work.

Now go on and edit the configuration for host4 and just change the document root to point to one of the other hosts (aka host1 or host2 or host3). I know, I know. This will break host4 but host4 is anyway not working (according to your statement). So after reloading nginx go into a browser and check if host4 is now working (showing the content of the other selected host). If this is the case then it is not the nginx configuration.
