Today I added a new domain, and the issue showed up again.

curl -i

Returns a redirect to


curl -i

Returns a redirect to

I really would like to understand why this happens.

This is the output of nginx -T

# configuration file /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/
server {
     listen 80;
     server_tokens off;
     # Don't show the nginx version number

     include /etc/nginx/snippets/location-letsencrypt.conf;

     return 301 https://$server_name$request_uri;

server {
     listen 443 ssl http2;

     server_tokens off;
     # Don't show the nginx version number

     include /etc/nginx/snippets/location-letsencrypt.conf;
     include /etc/nginx/snippets/ssl-params.conf;

     ssl_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/;

     location / {
        proxy_http_version  1.1;
        #For Websockets and keepalive connections
        proxy_set_header Upgrade           $http_upgrade;
        proxy_set_header Connection        "upgrade";
        #required when using Websockets
        proxy_set_header Host              $host;
        #   hostname from the request line,
        #   or hostname from the Host request header field,
        #   or the server name matching a request.
        proxy_set_header X-Real-IP         $remote_addr;
        #Forwards the real visitor remote IP address
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For   $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
        #List containing the IP addresses of every server the client has 
been proxied through.
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
        #When used inside an HTTPS server block,
        #each HTTP response from the proxied server is rewritten to HTTPS
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host  $host;
        #Original host requested by the client
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Port  $server_port;
        #Original port requested by the client
        proxy_pass http://INTERNAL-IP/;
