curl -v

The response will be interesting.

My guess is that your rails/passenger settings (outside of nginx) are
causing a http redirect to something like; and
because you have disabled the http server for that name, it is handled
by the default server on that ip:port.

If that is the case -- check your rails/passenger setting to see if they
refer to http anywhere, and make them not.
