Seeking for dynamic proxy_pass solution

I'd like to achieve something as follow using nginx -

When browsing to http://myserver/ for example,
I want proxy_pass to be set to;

Im getting somewhere but still need help,
Catching the argument this way -

In nginx config -
set $ip $arg_device;
proxy_pass  http://$ip;

Which actually works but breaks when there's an image/css/js, for example -
[09/Mar/2014:23:05:44 +0200] "GET /?device= HTTP/1.1" 200 689
"-" "Mozilla/4.0 ...
[09/Mar/2014:22:58:30 +0200] "GET /welcome.png HTTP/1.1" 500 594
"http://server/?device=" "Mozilla/4.0 ...

When I try to access http://server/?device= - It

What would be the easiest way to solve this so css,js,images will be called
GET /?device=
and not just 
GET /welcome.png

Thank you,
