That indicates that this browser sent a request of something like "please
send me /, if it is newer than (some time in the past)", and nginx said
"/ is not newer than then".

It does not say anything about whether the "time in the past" corresponded
to /usr/local/nginx/html/index.html, and whether "not newer" corresponds
to /www/index.html. Maybe neither apply; maybe both do.

If you do

  curl -i

what content do you get back? Is it from the file that you want it to be?
