The config in this howto, and the config that you showed, are not the same.

Note particularly the "location" and the "proxy_pass" lines.

The howto say to do something else as well.

I don't know if it is correct -- I don't use Jenkins -- but I also don't
know what you've done, because you haven't said.

That could be due to proxy_pass.

"specified with a URI" means "any slash after the host:port part".

If that doesn't fix things, then can you find one request which does
not work as you expect it to, and show what url nginx gets, and what
url jenkins gets, and see if that helps find where things go wrong?

Good luck with it,
