It looks like you didn't understand my answer. Again: connections
to upstream servers don't use any client certificates. That is,
no certificates are used by nginx when connecting to upstream

The only thing you can specify is ssl_client_certificate (and
ssl_client_certificate_key), and it is used only in connections
SSL support in proxy module is rather rudientary and it doesn't
support using client certificates.
