nginx configuration is parsed/analyzed by nginx master process by design.
Moreover, TLS configuration is kept at this level if I recall well.
Thus, the user your master process use needs to have the rights to access
the specified file.

To reload nginx configuration, you will indeed need to use SIGHUP, as nginx
control documentation <> states.
