e.g.: (assuming some web root set)
    # location configuration for directly serving files from directory
    location /dist {
       proxy_max_temp_file_size 1m;
       autoindex off;
    # default handler location configuration for passing to upstream proxy
    location ^~ / {
        proxy_pass http://upstreamproxy;

best regards,
