Reverse proxy and wireshark

I am suddenly worrying about something simple : 

I have a box that send some traffic with proxy_pass to get files from
another of my box faking the url. Hence acting as a reverse proxy.
All the connections are ssl covered.


But is the whole reverse proxy broken if one listen with wireshark to the
traffic of that proxy server ?
Will it tell in the clear that I get the file from$uri ?

Any hope to prevent that ? I don't want people to be able to know my other
boxes ips.

My boxes are all over europe, cannot change this.

Is there an option in Nginx that would help there ?

Thanks !
