Well you didn't specify the actual rewrite.

Also from the initial mail the actual setup is a bit unclear - if the docker is only running php-fpm (and the nginx is on host) or both nginx and php are inside docker, but I assume it's the first.

As an idea - while you can mangle/rewrite the root/path in the nginx config, when configuring wordpress (+php-fpm) to run inside a docker container I found more easy just to set the container volume to have the same path (mount point) as the host server. So while isolated, both (nginx on host and php inside container) have identical directory tree.
