What do you mean as "return to nginx"? Or with other words why it should
not? Or how you need to guarantee that a subrequest would take place at
all and will be considered on another side?
As for njs and "it also returns to nginx", either I don't really
understand your approach or you simply missed the word "detached" in my
answer (and njs subrequest documentation).
