nginx itself has no ciphers support, it depend on openssl.
RHEL/CentOS version of openssl lacks elliptic curve ciphers,
it is explicitly striped from rpm (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=319901),
and ECDHE is unavailable on RHEL/CentOS with default openssl.
So either change/rebuild openssl rpm, rebuild nginx with
statically linked openssl or use another linux distribution.
You could list and check available ciphers by:
openssl cipher -v
