Hello,

You would need to do a few things:

  • After that upload your wordpress installation files to the subdirectory in question
  • Create a MySQL database and a MySQL user
  • Update your server block and specify the location of your new wordpress site
  • After the change to the Nginx file make sure that the syntax is ok with the nginx -t command and restart nginx: systemctl restart nginx
  • Then visit the subdirectory via your browser and complete the Wordpress installation

You can follow this step by step guide on how to do that here:
