Override Content-Type header with proxied requests

One question, your backend are sending the content-type header if you made
the request to it?
If yes, the value is right?
If not, I think the problem is on backend configuration.
You can set it on the nginx using the map like I suggest, but will have to
add all possible file types on the map, like

map $uri $custom_content_type {
    default         "text/html";
    ~(.*\.json)$  "application/json";
    ~(.*\.css)$  "text/css";
   ~(.*\.js)$  "application/javascript";
   # and all other formats

But I suggest to check the configuration on Backend server.
