Change the line in the location block to:

try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?q=$uri&$args;

and reload nginx

sudo systemctl reload nginx

All should be well :)

I change my admin url to the ip and when I try using the link https://14.*******.-world-admin

It gives me white page with page not found, how do I fix this?

Do you run a php-fpm interpreter or do you proxy-pass to a apache with php module running on your server? In first case please have all corresponding rewrite rules in your nginx config checked and static files locations to be set up to a right path. In the second case please check .htaccess file in your website root to be accessible by a webserver and to contain apropriate WP rewrite rules.
