That would require Nginx to inspect the file contents and make a guess as
to what file type it is. I don't know if it could do that.

You could try just using:

add_header Content-Type image/jpeg;

And hope that the user's web browser will automatically work out the
correct Content-Type, if the image was actually a PNG or something.
