What, specifically, do you mean by that?

You want to see a http redirect to the new url? Or you want to see some
other content?

Where does that other content come from?

That infinite loop matches what you have configured (assuming that the
nginx machine resolves the name workspace.corp.no to an address that
this nginx listens on).

I'm afraid that I do not know what you mean by that.

After you explain the behaviour you want, it may become clear how to
configure nginx to achieve that behaviour.

Good luck with it,
