LEMP Stack and SSL with prestashop => TTFB > 8Secs

Nginx LEMP DigitalOcean PHP Debian

Hello community :)

I hosted on VPS with digitalocean, in Singapour (we are located in Australia). I use Prestashop software for my store.
I installed nginx, php-fpm and mysql (LEMP Stack) by myself.

But I have like 8 sec for any page in prestashop to load this page (8sec only for the Time To First Byte)

nginx.conf :

user  www-data;
worker_processes  auto;
worker_priority        15;

error_log  /var/log/nginx/error.log warn;
pid        /var/run/;

events {
    worker_connections  1024;

http {
    include       /etc/nginx/mime.types;
    default_type  application/octet-stream;

    log_format  main  '$remote_addr - $remote_user [$time_local] "$request" '
                      '$status $body_bytes_sent "$http_referer" '
                      '"$http_user_agent" "$http_x_forwarded_for"';
