nginx, php7.0-fpm and laravel, not able to set it up when the url has a prefix which the server doesn't have

Thanks for replying.
I have 3 containers, one with nginx, another 2 containers with php-fpm on
them. Both php-fpm are sharing a volume mounted from local system, but on
separate paths. The php-fpm container files are serving as api webservices.
Both are having different set of files, but the path is the same. ie, the
php files will be on this path: /home/apps/apis.

Now lets the the name of the containers are nginx_wb, php_wbv1.0, php_wbv1.1

If the nginx receives the request for
It forwards the requests to the php_wbv1.0 container with the url

if the nginx receives the request for
It forwards the request to the php_wbv1.1 container with the url //Notice there is no v11 in the path.

This is what I wanted, although now its working fine, I wanted to use the
rewrite mechanism to do this, instead of hardcoding the SCRIPT_FILENAME.
