You're welcome.

I confess I'm not sure why you're still seeing a problem.

You have "proxy_pass $variable" -- this means you must have a "resolver"
configured which is a DNS server that nginx can use to find the IP address
associated with whatever hostname is included in $variable.

If you don't have a resolver, you get the error message you reported.

If you do have a resolver, you should see success, or a different error
message indicating why it failed.

Good luck with it,
