Hello everyone,

I have an environment with 3 containers and I also have a domain www.example.com with my app in production.

I would like to implement mediawiki with the pattern address like www.exemple.com/wiki

I tried to redirect any call for www.exemple.com/wiki to my mediwiki container and it works, but the address changes to www.exemple.com:8080/wiki

This is my compose file:

  build: ./app
  command: python manage.py runserver
   - 8000:8000

  build: ./nginx
    - 80:80
    - 443:443

 build: ./wiki
   - 8080:80

And this is the nginx.conf

upstream example {
    server app:8000;

upstream wiki {
    server wiki:80;

server {

    listen 80;

    client_header_timeout 3000;
    client_body_timeout 3000;
    fastcgi_read_timeout 3000;
    client_max_body_size 32m;
    fastcgi_buffers 8 128k;
    fastcgi_buffer_size 128k;

    location / {
        proxy_pass http://example;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
        proxy_set_header Host $host;
        proxy_redirect off;

    location /static/ {
        alias /home/app/web/static/;

    location /wiki {
        proxy_pass http://wiki;
        rewrite ^/wiki(.*) /$1 break;

There is a way to configure it and stop showing its port address?
What i’m missing? if there is a better way to do that, I’m open to suggestions.

Your configuration looks correct actually.

What happens when you visit your IP address on port 80?

You can take a look at this answer here but your approach is also correct:
