If you want it to happen, without needing it to be a rewrite, you can
do a redirect with

	location = / { return 301 /web1; }

(although I suspect that you will want a trailing slash there,
"/web1/;". And variants with a different http response code can be
used. And you can use the full "http://web1.example.local/web1/" if
you prefer.)
