You could try to use the alias instead of root then ( ).

In my mind though you're making it complicated.

In my experience all the Laravels work just simply by doing:

server {

   root   /path/laravel/public;

   location / {
           try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$query_string;

   location ~ \.php$ {
     fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php/php7.0-fpm.sock;
     fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME    $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
     fastcgi_index index.php;
     include fastcgi_params;

All the non-existing files (it helps to define a seperate location for 
static files though) and virtual paths are passed to the Laravel's 
/index.php "router" and it knows what to do with it without any extra 
mumbojumbo on nginx side.
