Hello there, late answear but this is the configuration:

server { listen 80; server_name; rewrite ^/(.*)$1 permanent; }

server {

listen 443 ssl;

root /var/www/html/drupal; index index.php index.html index.htm;

server_name; ssl_certificate /xxxxxxxx ssl_certificate_key /xxxxxxx

error_page 404 = /index.html; error_page 500 502 503 504 /50x.html; location = /50x.html { root /usr/share/nginx/html; }

location = /favicon.ico { log_not_found off; access_log off; }

location = /robots.txt { allow all; log_not_found off; access_log off; }

location ~ …/..php$ { return 403; }

location ~ ^/sites/.*/private/ { return 403; }

location ~ (^|/). { return 403; }

location / { try_files $uri @rewrite; }

location @rewrite { rewrite ^ /index.php; }

location ~ .php$ { fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+.php)(/.+)$; include fastcgi_params; fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $request_filename; fastcgi_intercept_errors on; fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;


location ~ ^/sites/.*/files/styles/ { try_files $uri @rewrite; }

location ~* .(js|css|png|jpg|jpeg|gif|ico)$ { expires max; log_not_found off; } }

Could you paste here your nginx.conf? It seems like 50x error occurred, so nginx is trying to show you html page with 50x error, but could find the html file. Alternatively, check out Wodby on the Projects page, they provide a simple way to deploy Drupal to your droplets (they also use nginx).
