Hi!

Looking at the server_name setting, it looks like it is set to www.subdomain.domain.com. Have you added a DNS record for www.subdomain.domain.com? Even if you have added a DNS record for subdomain.domain.com, it will still need a separate record for www.* to work as both of them are not related to each other.

If you want it to be accessible from both www.subdomain.domain.com and subdomain.domain.com, add both to server_name, separated by a space, and make sure that the correct DNS records exist for both of them.
