Passing a special Magento URL to PHP-FPM

I’m trying to learn how to pass specific Magento 1.x URLs such as this to a PHP-FPM backend.


All the nginx configs I’ve found (e.g. include the same configuration blocks but does it actually work for the above mentioned URL structure?

    location @handler { ## Magento uses a common front handler
        rewrite / /index.php;
    location ~ \.php/ { ## Forward paths like /js/index.php/x.js to relevant handler
        rewrite ^(.*\.php)/ $1 last;
    location ~ \.php$ { ## Execute PHP scripts
        expires        off; ## Do not cache dynamic content
        fastcgi_pass   fpm_backend;
        fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME  $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
        include        fastcgi_params; ## See /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params
    location / {
        index index.html index.php; ## Allow a static html file to be shown first
            try_files $uri $uri/ @handler; ## If missing pass the URI to Magento's front handler
            expires 30d; ## Assume all files are cachable
            if ($request_uri ~* "\.(png|gif|jpg|jpeg|css|js|swf|ico|txt|xml|bmp|pdf|doc|docx|ppt|pptx|zip)$") {
                expires max;
        # set fastcgi settings, not allowed in the "if" block
        include /usr/local/etc/nginx/fastcgi_params;
        fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$; #this line
        fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root/index.php;
        fastcgi_param SCRIPT_NAME /index.php;
        fastcgi_param  MAGE_RUN_CODE default;
        fastcgi_param  MAGE_RUN_TYPE store;
        # rewrite - if file not found, pass it to the backend
        if (!-f $request_filename) {
            fastcgi_pass fpm_backend;
