Great that you found and fixed the problem; and thanks for sharing the
answer with the list -- it will probably help the next person with
a similar head-scratching issue!

(I guess you either removed the INPUT DROP rule; or added an explicit
"allow 443" beside the "allow 80" rule that was already there. Whichever
it was, it was "make the local firewall allow the traffic get to nginx".)
