In this thread you asked about how this could be done, you didn't say
that you already tried something and that it didn't work.

So you are hoping that someone may be able to provide the technical
reason for a failure you didn't even mention in the first place (let alone
some details)?

As for your original question, I would configure the old server like this,
to pass the requests to the new server:

server {
    listen       80;
    location / {
        proxy_pass       http://<newserverip>:80;
        proxy_set_header Host     $host;
        proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
server {
    listen       443 ssl;
    location / {
        proxy_pass       https://<newserverip>:443;
        proxy_set_header Host      $host;
        proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
