When I use your config on my test machine, it works for me.
So it looks like what you have is fundamentally correct; there is
obviously something wrong somewhere, but it is likely something small.

Can you copy-paste the command you use to test things; and perhaps show
the log line for that request?

As was pointed out - there should be & in the middle of that.
If you "merely" add &, you will probably see mostly-the-same response --
because your shell will read an unescaped & as "end of command".
My guess is that your log line will show the request for
/html/index.html?md5=FsRb_uu5NsagF0hA_Z-OQg, which will (correctly)
What happens if you do
$ curl 'http://127.0.0.1/html/index.html?md5=FsRb_uu5NsagF0hA_Z-OQg&expires=2147483647'
(with &, and with the whole argument shell-quoted in '')?
