Question

My domain name points to a different server!

Recently, I have created a new droplet. I install LEMP stack on it.

Then I tried to link my server IP address to my domain name.
I setup a virtual host as per instructions here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-nginx-virtual-hosts-server-blocks-on-ubuntu-12-04-lts–3

but when I type my domain name in the browser, I am being redirected to the www.dropletopedia.com

Why?

When I type my server IP address (you can try: 104.131.161.63) I am redirected to my home page. However, when I type my domain name (you can also try: arukidasu.ru) I am redirected to dropletopedia.

Could you please help me understand why it happens and what I did wrong?

You have to also add the DNS to your domain management in your panel. But it looks like you already got it working. If you need any more help, please ask.
