Hi @hanthienhai-e9c56990-88fa-436e-a539-24b3cc74e17e,

I’ll suggest fixing your internal links rather than using Nginx for this job. Make your WordPress website work with domain.com and all internal links will work as they are supposed to.

I’ll suggest you check the following plugin:

It should allow you to migrate your WordPress website from domain.com/mobile to domain.com. Don’t forget to take a Snapshot of your Droplet prior to this action just in case something goes wrong:
