A typical nginx configuration has only one http {} block.

You can look at some examples:

Unless by "router" you mean the same Synology box you can't proxy unix sockets over TCP, they work only inside a single server/machine.

Also you don't need to forward multiple ports, just 80 and 443 (if ssl) and have name-based virtualhosts.
