Thanks Francis. Another sharp pair of eyes and mine not so much. The 
error was introduced when redacting the configs to protect the innocent.
The root in piwik.conf points correctly to the actual location of the 
site in /usr/share/nginx. I also tried turning off SELinux but that did 
not make a difference.

I can make it work when I chmod all files to 644 and all directories to 
755. But I do not understand why that is. If nginx and php-fpm are 
running as nginx/ningx shouldn't both be able to handle files & dirs 
owned by nginx/nginx with mode 640 and mode 750?
