using autoindex and the php index file

My config looks like this:

location / {
   index index.php;
   autoindex off;


location /autoindx_dir/ {
   autoindex on;

location /autoindx_dir/not/ {
   autoindex off;

also I have the php cgi options.
The problem is that nginx opens the index.php for my root directory if i
open only the domain. If I go to the "autoindx_dir" directory I see the
directory files like i want. But if I open "autoindex_dir/not" I see
also the hole directory although i have a index.php.

Whats wrong ?
