Drupal 8 Maintenace Page

I used the one-click drupal droplet and then updated via drush to the latest drupal version. I noticed when I put the site into maintenance mode the standard drupal maintenance page and text is not displayed. Instead Im getting an Nginx error page. I would prefer to show the standard drupal maintenance page like intended. Anyone know how I can use drupals built in maintenance page without disturbing Nginx 503 page?

Yea, Im aware of that. Is there a way to display the maintenance page instead of the Nginx 503 page? Thanks for the response.

Hi @tjhowe3

I did a little searching and it seems like Drupal sends a 503 error code, when the site is in maintenance, which leads to the default Nginx error shown.
