Sorry, I don't understood your answer. Could you explain what you mean,

That was an example configuration that is a fragment from more complex one.
We use *try_files /dir1$uri /dir2$uri =404;* directive to lookup file first
in dir1 and if file does not exist in dir1/temp/, then lookup in dir2/temp.
so 1.ts could be either in dir1/test/1.ts or in dir2/test/1.ts. I think
it's quite valid configuration. The problem is that it does not work when
combined with geoip. So two questions are here:
1. Are there any problems with this config
2. Are there any workarounds/fixes for this problem?
