Good stuff; thanks for sharing the result.

You probably already have this in place, but just in case not:

If all of your app2-static files are below the url prefix "/static_app2/",
you can add one location to proxy_pass them all to the test2 server, like

    location /static_app2/ { proxy_pass; }

and remove the "location =" piece that was there previously.

And if an "app3" in another container is added later, the central
nginx.conf should only need the two new locations (/app3, and
/static-app3/) for things to work as wanted too.
