Unless you’re CDN is different from the majority, most only require that you use either a specific URI that they provide, or a CNAME which masks the URI with your own custom sub-domain. With that in hand, you’d simply link to your static files.

So, for example, if they provide you with a link that looks like:

https://username.mycdn.com

and you’d normally access your CDN files using:

https://mysite.com/static

Then you’d simply link to the static files using the CDN URI instead of your domain, like so (as an example):

https://username.mycdn.com/static/file.css

You wouldn’t actually set this up through NGINX. This is something you setup either in your HTML, CSS, or JS files – wherever you link to static files.
