If that is the line that comes back from the proxy_pass'ed server to
nginx, then you want

  proxy_redirect http://lists.mydomain.com:8000/ /;

(where the first argument to proxy_redirect is the string that you want
to replace with the second argument, allowing for scheme://host to be
added later.)

If you can do without the "proxy_set_header Host" line, then you can
possibly do without proxy_redirect altogether (as in: use "proxy_redirect
default;" implicitly).
