NGINX and Slim PHP framework

nginx/1.10.0 & PHP 7.0.8

I'm struggling to get NGINX to work with the Slim PHP framework for paths.

The base index.php works fine (e.g. works), however 
if I try a framework path (e.g., NGINX 
sends me what Firefox seems to call a "DMS file" (if I download and open 
it, it displays the source code from the PHP file).

My NGINX config looks as follows:

server {
	listen 80 default_server;
	listen [::]:80 default_server;
	root /var/www/html/bobs/public;
	index index.php;
	server_name _;
	location / {
		try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php$is_args$args =404;
         location ~ ^(.+\.php)(.*)$ {
                 fastcgi_split_path_info  ^(.+\.php)(.*)$;
                 fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php/php7.0-fpm.sock;
                 fastcgi_index index.php;
                 fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME 
                 fastcgi_param  PATH_INFO        $fastcgi_path_info;
                 include fastcgi_params;

And my SLIM index.php :

require '../vendor/autoload.php';

// instantiate the App object
$app = new \Slim\App();

// Add route callbacks
$app->get('/', function ($request, $response, $args) {
     return $response->withStatus(200)->write('Hello World!');
$app->get('/hello/{name}', function (Request $request, Response $response) {
     $name = $request->getAttribute('name');
     $response->getBody()->write("Hello, $name");

     return $response;

// Run application
