SSL certificate not loaded

I have a strange problem with SLL. 

I purchased a SSL cert and combined the intermediary files into one:
cat www_mydomain_com.crt PositiveSSLCA2.crt AddTrustExternalCARoot.crt >>

In the server conf I have the following:

	listen			80;
	listen 			443 ssl;

	root			/var/www/mydomain/;

	ssl_protocols		SSLv3 TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2;
	ssl_ciphers			AES128-SHA:AES256-SHA:RC4-SHA:DES-CBC3-SHA:RC4-MD5;
	ssl_certificate		/etc/nginx/conf/mydomain-bundle.crt;
	ssl_certificate_key	/etc/nginx/conf/server.key;
	ssl_session_cache	shared:SSL:10m;
	ssl_session_timeout	10m;
	ssl_verify_depth 2;

SSL doesn't work and error log shows
no "ssl_certificate" is defined in server listening on SSL port while SSL
handshaking, client: x.x.x.x, server:

What's wrong? Of course, the file exists, I restarted the server. I tried
everything I could think of (absolute path, I added ssl_verify_depth,
verified that in the crt file the END/BEGIN blocks are on separate lines)
