I'm not entirely sure of what specifically you are looking for here.

Perhaps the secure link module
( or
other similar things can help?

Can you describe the intended behaviour here? As in, if I request
/audio-file.html, what response should I get?

Or alternatively: what request should I make, in order to be sent the
content of the file /usr/local/nginx/html/audio-file.html?
