Try port scan your network assigned IP and not

If something listens on for example, which is not, it will block requests for listening on "all interfaces" ( which Nginx is trying to do, because one or more interface is in use for that port.

netstat -ln
Will tell you all listening ports and interfaces on most OS and is always preferred over port scans as its direct information that does not rely on successful connection that a firewall may block.

Hope it helps
