I want that “subdomain.domain.com” masks and points to an external url like “http://xxx.yyy.com/12345/”.
Can you give me a step by step procedure? My droplet is Ubuntu WordPress on 14.04.

You create a vhost in your webserver configuration that redirects or proxies to your desired URL.

You could use something such as:

<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName sub.yourdomain.com
  RedirectPermanent / http://xxx.yyy.com/12345/
</VirtualHost>

and then restart Apache for the changes to take.
