You can add a rewrite rule to redirect / to /page: <br><pre>rewrite ^/$ /page permanent;</pre>

i’ll try it and let you know if it works, thanks

You can change the index of root directory to home <br>or tell nginx to try for home when visitor hit your domain <br> <br>location / { <br> try_files $uri $uri/ =404; <br> index home.html; <br>} <br> <br>Or <br> <br>location / { <br> try_files $uri $uri/home.html =404; <br>}
