        # Add index.php to the list if you are using PHP
        index index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;


        #Change ssl_certificate and ssl_certificate_key to point towards your SSL Certificate and your SSL key, respectively.

        ssl_certificate_key /etc/nginx/ssl/sureremittokensecurewebkey.key;

after updating my default nginx configuration file to this, it worked

server {
    listen 80;
    return 301 https://$host$request_uri;

server {

    listen 443;

    ssl_certificate           /etc/nginx/ssl/cert.pem;
    ssl_certificate_key       /etc/nginx/ssl/key.key;

    ssl on;
    ssl_session_cache  builtin:1000  shared:SSL:10m;
    ssl_protocols  TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2;
    ssl_ciphers HIGH:!aNULL:!eNULL:!EXPORT:!CAMELLIA:!DES:!MD5:!PSK:!RC4;
    ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;

    access_log            /var/log/nginx/jenkins.access.log;

    location / {

      proxy_set_header        Host $host;
      proxy_set_header        X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
      proxy_set_header        X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
      proxy_set_header        X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;

      # Fix the “It appears that your reverse proxy set up is broken" error.
      proxy_pass          http://localhost:8000;
      proxy_read_timeout  90;

      proxy_redirect      http://localhost:8000;
