https://example.com would be the wordpress app. I want that when someone enter to https://example.com/chat, he or she enters to the nodejs app. how could i connect both apps behind a load balancer and a database?

Make sure all three droplets have private networking enabled so Nginx proxying happens on those internal networks. In your Nginx vhost definition you’ll have two “location” blocks, one for the root example.com/ and one for the chat app example.com/chat.
