With that configuration, I'd expect that any non-php request to a url
that starts would be served directly from the
filesystem below /usr/share/nginx/html/

I'm not able to work out how you want php requests to be handled.

After "fastcgi_pass", the configuration becomes unclear. By which I mean
"probably broken".

So, when you say "cant access any directory below it": can you nominate
one specific url, and say what you actually get when you fetch it,
and say what you expect to get when you fetch it?

I suspect that the output of something like

curl -i

will be useful.

If the problem is with the php configuration, then can you describe how
you would like the request to be handled?

As in, if I access, which php
file do you want "the system" to read and process?
