Prevent Nginx from logging random IPs

I installed Nginx on Ubuntu and I only have 2 html files. When I check Nginx logs there are tons of random IP addresses sending GET and POST requests. I get IPs with no information just “batman” and random websites. How do I filter Nginx logs to only show me requests that access the html files I host on Nginx?

Is this a new droplet? Sounds like this has a previously used (and popular) up address

Chance your nginx site conf to just listen to your domain and turn login off for the default server.
