How do I create a subdomain and point it to a different folder in nginx? Like we could do it in cPanel (we added a new subdomain and set it's document root to a directory) Ref: https://rtcamp.com/support/topic/wordpress-images-subdomain/

You just need to add another server block in your nginx config file. See the example here: http://wiki.nginx.org/ServerBlockExample

You'll also need to add a CNAME to your DNS records to point the subdomain to the right place.
