Wait for backend

I have one backend:

upstream backend_1 {

and server:

server {
  location / {
        proxy_pass http://backend_1;

Sometimes I have to restart my backend and it is unavailable for 3-5sec
(port unreachable)

How I can tell nginx to "wait" for backend and do not respond with 502 ?
So it should hold connection for 5 second and if it is unreachable in that
interval responds 502 to client.
