Hi there,

This sounds like there might be a problem with the Nginx configuration.

I could suggest using the Nginx configuration from this tutorial here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-a-node-js-application-for-production-on-ubuntu-16-04

If this still does not work, I would suggest chacking your Nginx error log for some more information and also possibly sharing your Nginx configuration here.

Regards, Bobby
