Error 404 if url contains "star"

i have a very strange problem with my nginx configuration. If the URL contains the word "star", i get the standard 404 Error not found page.
I defined a rule that should redirect all requests to index.php. --> works, returns my custom styled error 404 page (processed by PHP) -> exact word "star", returns default error 404 page (Request does not seem to go over PHP)
The access_log does not log the 404 Error, if the url contains the word. I changed to debug log levels but no logfileis showing something. Tried different nginx versions, server is running Debian 8. 
Any ideas?!
