Port redirect in URL

I'm going a bit crazy here and hoping for some help. I've set up a new 
Mailman installation on FreeBSD. The system is set as follows:

Web <-> nginx SSL termination and reverse proxy <-> nginx + fcgiwrap + 

When I try to access https://lists.mydomain.com or 
https://lists.mydomain.com/ it redirects me to 
https://lists.mydomain.com:8000/mailman/listinfo which of course fails.

If I access https://lists.mydomain.com/mailman/listinfo directly or any 
URL except the main one, it works as expected.

I have tried multiple options including:

port_in_redirect off;
proxy_bind $host:443;
proxy_redirect off;

Nothing seems to be working.
Proxy settings for nginx front end: server

     location / {
         proxy_set_header    X-Real-IP   $remote_addr;
         proxy_set_header    X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
	proxy_set_header    X-Forwarded-Proto   $scheme;
         proxy_http_version 1.1;
         proxy_set_header Connection "";
         proxy_redirect   off;
         proxy_set_header   Host  $host;


Backend server uses fastcgi for Python via fcgiwrap. Any help would be
