Health Check on Load Balancer Fails Does Not Work on TCP or HTTP

My load-balancer is convinced my droplet is unhealthy and so blocking it. The droplet is running NGINX on Ubuntu 16.04. I can access the website that NGINX is hosting via the public IP or a domain pointed to that IP. And a floating IP works.

I’ve tried both HTTP and TCP for health-checks, neither works. Any suggestions?

Good luck @dloker I eventually gave up and just went with a floating IP which is way cheaper but not ideal.
