I'm saying that response you presented wasn't send by nginx (core) itself.

This is *very important* information, that you didn't bother to mention 
earlier... And as it turns out, that response was produced by 
nginx_http_push_module, so you should probably contact its author and ask 
him if your particular use case is supported (because it seems that this 
module supports at least some OPTIONS requests).
