Redirecting existing links to a sub-folder to a new subdomain

If I want to transform links from to where subdomain has the same
name as the subfolder, do I need a rewrite or a redirect? I *think* I need a
redirect but want to be sure I am doing it the recommended way.

I tried "rewrite /sub-folder-name/(.*)
$scheme://$1 permanent;"

But this didn't seem to have any effect after restarting nginx.
