There's a few possibly-useful questions to consider:
Why do you want to do this?
As in: what is the problem that you want to solve? Possibly there is a
better approach than this.
Also: given that you want to do this, why do you want to do this without
Sometimes "if" is the correct tool to use.
And: what's a file and what's a directory? Your initial config
example used proxy_pass, which refers to remote urls, not files
or directories. *This* nginx does not know whether an upstream url
corresponds to a file or to something else. So that may want to be
considered before designing the solution.
Good luck with it,
