No input file specified by FastCGI

We have our own framework written in PHP, but it's using .html extension (and change of this is not possible).
So when I put appropriate block in config, part of site is working, but few rewrites is not.

here is my .html parsing block

location ~ \.html$ {
        if (!-f $request-filename) { return 404; break; }
  root /path/to/files;
  fastcgi_index index.html;
  fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
  fastcgi_intercept_errors on;
  include fastcgi_params;

and rewrite rule that isn't working there:

  rewrite ^/user/(.*)/moje.([0-9]+).html$ /moje.html?u=$1&showpage=$2 last;
  rewrite ^/user/(.*)/(content|lista)/([0-9]+).html$ /moje.html?otheruser=$1&showpage=$3 last;
  rewrite ^/user/(.*)/(content|lista).html$ /moje.html?otheruser=$1 last;
  rewrite ^/user/(.*)/(+).html$ /$2.html?u=$1 last;

previously, at Apache, it was working fine (but a little bit slow, so we decide to move to nginx)

Please help me,
Mateusz Kozak.
