How to access our node app from nginx website?

Hello! i am new to digitalocean here…i deployed my static website using nginx and when i try to access my droplet ip-address i access my static website. Now on the other hand i also deployed my MEAN app in a same droplet as well…when i run my MEAN application from console the my application is running on “<droplet-ip-address>:port”. Now my question is that i want to configure my MEAN application in a way that when i try to access “<droplet-ip-address>:port/meanapp” then i want to navigation from my static website to MEAN application.

How to configure this scenario…Thanks

Hello,

What you could do is set up Nginx as a reverse proxy for your Node.js application. You can follow the steps here:
