I confess that I have become confused about what behaviour you want,

you see the behaviour that you see.
When you make a request for /grant/one/yes.txt, what file on your

When you make a request for /grant/one/yes.php, what file on your
filesystem do you want nginx to tell the fastcgi server to process?
When you make a request for /grant/one/no.txt, what file on your
filesystem do you want nginx to tell the fastcgi server to process
(because the file does not exist)?
And which of those do not do what you want, using your current
