This is not something proxy_pass is expected to do for you 
automatically.  It only proxies the resource requested, and 
doesn't try to modify any links to other resources in the resource 
itself.  Moreover, in many cases it is not at all possible, as the 
format of the resource can be proprietary.

The best solution is to teach your backend to use either relative 
links to additional resources, or to use proper external root URL 
for resources (usually there is an configuration option for this).

You may also try to change links on the fly using the sub_filter 
directive, see  This is relatively 
costly and not going to work in all cases, but may help to 
mitigate problems till there is a possibility to fix the backend.
