You need to use/configure the same SSL certificates on nginx as on the
backend eg just proxy_pass'ing to backend won't work.
But is there a reason for "talking" to backend via https?
The common approach (also better performance) is offloading the SSL to nginx
and proxying via plain http.

Not exactly true https://github.com/yaoweibin/nginx_tcp_proxy_module , but
that is kind of another topic.
