Installed nginx with iredmail; how to add web content & test without DNS change

I think I failed to explain my problem correctly. It seems to me whatever I
do for the test would be on the server side, not client side. Studying your
reply, I think your solution maps to ipaddress (dotted quad) from
the client side. What I need to do is have the one ip address I have for the
server  host iredmail and my website.

Iredmail creates an index.html in /var/www with contents

        <meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=/mail/">

I created a /var/www2 with a different index.html, but I don't see how nginx
would know which directory to use.

I was able to get nginx working with my website prior to having iredmail on
the same server. Having both services on the same server is what confuses
