You seem to be suggesting that you can successfully access
http://devserver/dev/something by going through nginx, but you cannot
successfully access http://devserver/something by going through nginx.

Is that correct?

If so, the answer is something like

  location / { proxy_pass http://devserver; }

or maybe

  location ~ thing { proxy_pass http://devserver; }

You need to decide what requests you want nginx to send to the upstream
devserver, and configure location{}s accordingly.
