Nginx Ubuntu

I am trying to install nginx to work on Ubunt server. I check status of nginx is "active". I configure from https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-nginx-on-ubuntu-16-04 . I checked with this command sudo nginx -t

Result: nginx: the configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf syntax is ok
nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test is successful

*File: /etc/nginx/nginx.conf *

user www-data;
worker_processes auto;
pid /run/nginx.pid;

        worker_connections 768;
        # multi_accept on;

What is the domain name / IP address you're using to access it..?

Your server is configured to listen on the internal loopback IP and not on the public IP of the droplet.
