I'm afraid that I don't understand what exactly you are asking for.

When someone asks for, what do you want to
send back? The contents of /usr/local/nginx/html/file? Or tell them to
ask for instead? Or something else?

Same question for --
contents of /usr/local/nginx/html/app-saas/file; redirect to; something else?

And is that "for any subdomain they use", or "for one specific one"?

If the configuration really is common, then using "include" might be an
option. But the earlier questions are probably more useful to answer first.
