Your nginx is using a config file.

You made a change to a config file.

Have you any evidence that the config file you changed is the config
file that your nginx is using?

"ps -ef | grep nginx" may show if an explicit config file is being used
("-c" argument).

If not, "nginx -V" should show the "configure arguments", which will
show any --conf-path or --prefix that will indicate the default config
file that nginx will use, if it is not the default-default.
