Reverse proxy problem with an application

I have run an application behind a nginx reverse proxy and I can't make it to work
a) if I access this application using it works (certificate warning)b) if I access this application using, I get access to the login page    location ^~ / {
        proxy_redirect    off;
        proxy_set_header  Host             $http_host;
        proxy_set_header  X-Real-IP        $remote_addr;
        proxy_set_header  X-Forwarded-For  $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
        proxy_hide_header X-Frame-Options;        proxy_hide_header X-Content-Security-Policy;
        proxy_hide_header X-Content-Type-Options;
        proxy_hide_header X-WebKit-CSP;
        proxy_hide_header content-security-policy;
        proxy_hide_header x-xss-protection;
        proxy_set_header  X-NginX-Proxy true;
        proxy_ssl_session_reuse off;
c) I log in in the page and after some time (2/3 seconds) the application logs me out
When I log in directly case a) I notice that I have (firebug)
CookieSaveStateCookie=root; APPSESSIONID=070ABC6AE433D2CAEDCFFB1E43074416; testcookieenabled
Whereas when I log in in case c) I haveAPPSESSIONID=070ABC6AE433D2CAEDCFFB1E43074416; testcookieenabled

So I feel there's a problem with the session or something like that.PS: There is only one backend server and I can't run plain http (disable https)

Does anyone has an idea ?
