vertual host config

        listen 80 default_server;

        index index.html index.htm index.php;

php config in it is

  location ~ \.php$ {
        #       fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$;
        #       # NOTE: You should have "cgi.fix_pathinfo = 0;" in php.ini
        #
        #       # With php5-cgi alone:
                fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9000;
        #       # With php5-fpm:
        #       fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
                fastcgi_index index.php;
                include fastcgi_params;

        }

It looks like there is a typo on your fastcgi_param line. It should be:

fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME  $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;

Magento uses a fairly standard LEMP stack. This tutorial should help you get up and running:

How To Install Linux, nginx, MySQL, PHP (LEMP) stack on Ubuntu 14.04

If you're still running into issues after that, check for any messages in your Nginx and PHP error logs:

/var/log/nginx/error.log
/var/log/php5-fpm.log

A LEMP stack (Linux, Nginx, MySQL, and PHP) is a powerful set of software that can be configured to serve dynamic sites and web apps from your server. In this guide, we will discuss how to install a LEMP stack on an Ubuntu 14.04 server.
