There is a problem with your setup.  You are trying to use nginx 
as a forward proxy, while nginx isn't a forward proxy, it's a 
reverse proxy.  While it is possible to configure nginx as a 
forward proxy with some limitations (try google if you really wish 
to do it), this isn't something supported.
