Hi @vashokkumar600,

You can use Nginx as a reverse Proxy and configure both to work the way you want.

Basically, you’ll create two different configuration files and make the API calls in your nextJS config file. Another solution might be using the DigitalOcean App platform to deploy a Next.js App which uses a django app to do the API calls:
