I'm going to guess that you mean "every request that starts with /content/
should be handled by ser02".

In that case, your configuration should be like

  location ^~ /content/ {
    proxy_pass http://ser02;

What happens when you use that?

(What request do you make?; what response do you get?)

If you still see a problem, can you list the exact request that does
work as you want, and the exact request that does not work as you want?
